Best Pianists of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Jon Schmidt
82 Leopold 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

83 Jozef Kapustka

Polish pianist, a true phenomenon of versatility.

84 Joe Zawinul
85 Tori Amos Tori Amos

Just listen to his piano solos. He is great! He can play like two players were there!

88 Yoshiki
89 Isaac Shepard
90 Richard 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.
