My girlfriend's got a remastered recording of a Rachmaninov concerto, with the piano part being played by Rachmaninov himself and its absolutely amazing. Judging by the piano parts that they wrote Rachmaninov and Liszt must have been phenomenal pianists, although I'd say Chopin actually wrote the best piano music.

For modern music, I'd say jazz pianists all the way. There are loads of them so I won't name names. Elton John really isn't a great pianist, no more so than Bryan Adams is a great guitarist.

Oh, don't bother with my opinion bit on the above post. Just remember that there is a CD around somewhere with Rachmaninov playing his own concerto. Buy it! Now! Get some real music into you.

Im going to ignore that last sentence and ask the question "Didn't he live in the 13th century?"

Not unless he lived a very, very long time. To my knowledge he was born in the 19th century and died in the 20th. Had he been around in the 13th century and had a typical human lifespan its very unlikely that he would have written any piano concertos at all as the piano was invented some time during the 17th (I think) century. In the 13th century he would have been limited to sackbutts, viols and eunuchs singing soprano.
