Best Pianists of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Krystian Zimerman
62Georgii Cherkin
63Ben Folds

Deserves to be in top 20 at least. The best rock n' Roll Pianist of the last 20 years.

64Mike ShinodaMichael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

Mike Shinoda is the best rapper and pianist. Linkin Park Rocks!

Mike is one talented person i"ve ever seen..and a great pianist too

65Bruce Hornsby
66Keith EmersonKeith Noel Emerson was an English keyboardist and composer. Emerson played in a number of bands before he found his first commercial success with the Nice.

The best ever. Honestly, the only reason he's this low is because he is not very popular.

67Benny Andersson
68Tim Rice-Oxley

Best Emotion KEANE best nice good amazing world number one

Must be the most enthusiastic pianist in a while.

69Omar Khairat

! How is he not one of the top 10. So far I've never met anyone who'd say they've listened to Omar khairat music cause the correct phrase is " I've fallen in love with Omar khairat's music". His compositions will surly do nothing but touch the very depths of your soul. Listen to The Case of Am Ahmed to better know this heart-churning artist, then you'd understand where he really belongs on this list.

70Richard WrightRichard William "Rick" Wright was an English musician, composer, singer and songwriter. He was the main keyboardist and a backup vocalist for the psychedelic and progressive English rock band, Pink Floyd .

He is a great pianist mostly known for his career in Pink Floyd one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Hmm,69? he deserves better.he played other instruments more than piano but he also played piano greatly - zxm

This man was a great pianist on the polish radio just before WW2 when he was force to hide, he survived. I believe he died in 1999.

73Harry Connick Jr.Joseph Harry Fowler Connick Jr. is an American singer, musician, and actor. He has sold over 28 million albums worldwide.
74Tim Minchin

Tim Minchin to me is a stand alone genius when it comes to showcasing what connecting with a piano is truly all about... Forget his comedic nature, which I'm sure is a major factor in the dismissal of his true talent in many people's option, and why he is void of the true recognition he aptly is deserved of. I am usually a man of very few words, but on this occasion my pallet has been moistened. Please don't misjudge or indeed prejudge. Forget your purism and let your passion for the instrument guide you on this one. Tim is in no uncertain terms, a modern day genius.

I don't agree with all of his religious ways but the way he connects with music is just imaginable, he has to be one of the most respectable pianists.

I can't believe Tim Minchin was not on the list! Literally, listen to any single one of his songs and you will see the amazement that is, Tim Minchin.

80Leopold Godowski

POLISH PIANIST GODOWSKI IS CONSUDERED TO POSSESS THE GREATEST TECHNIQUE IN TERNS OF SKILL THAT EVEN HOROWITZ AND RACHMONINOFF AGREE. HE HAS PUSHED PIANO TECHNIQUE THE HUMAN LIMIT AND IT CAN NOT GO ANY FURTHER. PROOF IS IN HIS CHOPIN VARIATIONS FOR BOTH HANDS AND THE SCHUBERT UNFINISHED SYMPHONY VARIATIONS WHICH ONLY A VERY PIANISTS CAN PLAY. APART FROM THAT FRANZ LISZT WOULD BE THE ALL TIME GREATEST VIRTUOSO IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE, SKILL, TALENT INFLUENCE, COMPOSITIONS, REPUTATION AND AGREEMENT FROM ALL OTHER GREAT PIANISTS OF THE TIME. BUSONI. RACHMONOOV, HOROWITZ, RUBINSTEIN, BOLET, SERKIN, PENNARIO, ASHKENAZI AND OTHERS, I WOULD NOT PUT YANNI AND OTHER POP PIANITS WITH THE GREAT PIANISTS EXCEPT ART TATUM JAZZ PIANIST
