121John LegendJohn Roger Stephens, better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actor.
122Ernesto Lecuona

Just lookup his work and YouTube videos. I really don't know who made this list. Lots of names have been put here just out of sympathy.

123Vince Guaraldi
124Mitsuko Uchida

Pure artistry. very difficult to compare one artist to another, all are unique, Rubenstein, Hess, Argerich...

125Rafal Blechacz

Lots of hype about Rafal preceded my hearing him perform
Bach, Beethoven and Chopin two nights ago in San Francisco. Kissen and Ashkanazy WERE my #1 and #2. Rafal
Is now #1. Listen to him play, you may agree with me.

126Richard Clayderman

Although Clayderman is not my favorite pianist, he deserves to be much higher on this list, he has such a skill at rolling on the piano and he plays with such experience. In my opinion, Clayderman is as talented (if not more talented) than Yanni.

Although he is not my favorite pianist, Clayderman deserves to be much higher on this list. He shows such skill at rolling on the piano and reveals such experience. In my opinion he is just as talented (if not more talented) than Yanni.

He should be in the top 30's at least! Clayderman is a very experienced at the piano.

127Michel Petrucciani
128Llŷr Williams

His technique is astonishing!
