Best Piano Players of All Timemaggot-104
The Top Ten
He is best piano player ever. He started playing at the age 4.
One of the greatest artists
This should be me (Si dogg) as iam the best piano player in the world. I really love piano.
He was a gift from God cause he was deaf
The greatest artist ever
He was a really really good piano player
He's very talented because even he was deaf,he compose the most hardest and mastery pieces in piano
Mozart is good but Mozart's predicted IQ is 160-165 but Beethıven's is 175-180
Technically no, but his originality trumps technicalities. John Coltrane said if you miss a change it's like falling down an elevator shaft with Monk. His influence is gigantic in modern music.
One of the most famous Jazz musicians of all time. It is no coincedence that he plays piano either, he is great at it, he also has great music writing skills. All around very good piano player - maggot-104
Liberace had lots and lots of talent. Besides who is still living who ever heard Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, etc. ever play to know how well they played. Their written music may have been good, but that just tells how well they composed music.
Liberace is proof good marketing and no talent can still get you sucess
Billy Joel is in the same category as a Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven. He writes the lyrics and the music AND sings. Pure absolute genius. Thank you Billy for bringing your music to the world. You will be remembered FOREVER!
Piano man is like Chopin on steroids. filipino everyone inequality music genre verisimilitude
He is my favorite artist and I'm ten
Honestly, Billy Joel is good, but does not deserve to be this high on the list. The piano fits his style of singing, and he is definitely talented... but compared to Mozart, Chopin, and Bethoven, Billy is nothing.V 2 Comments
He can play pretty much any song he wants to play even if it didn't originally have a piano in it.
Also he has a monkey with him in all his videos; people enjoy seeing that monkey up on the piano.
Having a monkey wrapped around his wrist while playing the piano won me over apparently.
Basically the Japanese genre God
His instinctive gift to change tact in a tune but to maintain it as a one is his gift...as well as that left hand
I think he is one of the best that ever did it in music history and he is just so good you can't explain it
No one had more style than the killer
Awesome player with style
Franz Liszt is generally considered the greatest piano player in history. This list contains many great composers who were fine piano players, song writers and great musicians but virtuoso pianists
There are recordings of the last of Liszt's students, such as Arthur Friedheim, who specialized in Liszt's piano works. Frederic Lamond might give one an idea of what Liszt could teach, within the limitations of the pupil. I'm disappointed that this list's contributors have not noted great 20th century classical pianists, nor mentioned the great technician's of this century.
Come on, Ray Charles better than Franz List?
This list is ridiculous... there is Liszt..and then everyone else. If only recording devices existed in the 19th century..
Liszt was revered by his own contemporaries.. virtuosos in their own right.. while in my opinion no where near the composer of a Chopin, Brahms, or Mendelssohn.. he certainly outclassed them as a technician..
