Best Pianists of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Evgeny Kissin

The greatest pianist ever to come out of Russia. His technique is phenomenal, his sound is unique. I love rock and roll, but Elton and Billy couldn't TOUCH this man's ability. Mad props to anyone that actually has a famous pianist on the list.

Kissin was a child prodigy who - so to speak - directed a whole famous Moscow orchestra at age 12 during several Chopin concerts. Never seen a child prodigy like him.

The guy is just flawless:) he is my personal favourite and I think he should rank top

He is the current king of the piano!

43 Yuja Wang

She is brilliant technically and artistically. She plays powerfully and softly and with great velocity. Truly gifted.

The greatest virtuoso since Horowitz. And even greater artistry.

The heir to Howowitz and Argerich in dexterity and virtuosity. She is already better than them with her artistry and BIG box office and sales.
She is one rich pianist at 27 as of this post in fall 2014.
