    I am not qualified to compare or critic pianists, but I do know what I like. Here are two that I am currently impressed with:

    Lucy Mauro when playing as accompanist......a wonderful artist.
    Gabriela Martinez.....a pianist with a real future ahead of her.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    Rosalyn Tureck for Bach
    Murray Perahia for just about everything else

    But like anything, it depends on the performance, the moment, not the artist.

    ...I might have forgotten one or two, but I went through the alphabet in my mind, and I definitely got the great majority of pianists who I love, and/or have inspired me.
    Came back today to read this list I made yesterday. Blown away that I forgot Schiff. Love him so very much. Also surprised to see I forgot Fischer.

    You are so right, how soon can people be forgotten.
