Frederic Chopin, especially for his scherzos and "24 Preludes".

Tough call; in regards to my personal preference I would probably go with Rachminov. But in terms of ability, I wouldn't exactly know (because of so many unbeknown factors); but Rachminov's piano concerto no. 3 in D minor is truly a remarkable piece. Eminently, when it was first performed back in 1909, it was desolated by pianists and public alike, in favor of Rachminov's second concerto, which many felt was more compact, more tuneful and structurally sounder.

But modernly, Rachminov's piano concerto no. 3 is the most popular choice amongst piano competition candidates wanting to perform a virtuoso display piece.

My personal favorite is Chico Marx. He's the reason I wanted to play piano as a kid. He makes it look so easy.

Debussy is also a favorite. I love peices written in Whole-tone scales.

OK guys, I am reading a few names here that I would consider to be 'bashers' - what about New Age, like George Winston or Liz Story? I think the really good pianists are the ones that aren't signed to majors and we have never heard of them because they play the classics. Having said that, I also think there is a big difference between people who play other people's music and the ones who play their own - more heart and soul, go Tori Amos.
