107 Bryan Pezzone

This man can play the most difficult classical pieces and then turn around an improvise an amazing jazz session and everything in between. Why he isn't more well known is a mystery to me. See him this summer at the California Philharmonic on August 10.

The Greatest Pianist of the last 100 years!

One of the top ten 20th Century classical pianist. Go to You Tube and query his recording of the 3rd Movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, realize that he already had the tremors of Parkinsons Disease in this which was one of his last performances.

117 Carl Czerny

Most of us know him for his exercise books. But did you know he was considered one of the greatest pianist? He studied and worked with Beethoven. He had a student you might have heard of: Liszt. If you ever face a difficult time with your ability to play go back to his exercise books for the 4th and 5th finger, and his one for the left hand.
