Oooh, nice post. Well, I'm assuming you're asking strictly about classical pianists. At the moment these are the musicians I listen to the most so by default they're my favorites.


András Schiff
Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli
Claudio Arrau
Ana-Marija Markovina
: listening to her a lot because of this excellent box set -



and Emanuel "Manny" Ax

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Oh yeah, my favorite rendition. Frozen, affectless, perfect tone and atmosphere...

He should be better known, one of the great performers of 20th century music (and Bach too)
