    I raise my eyebrows at Stockhausen's Klavierstuck IX being included on a list of "greatest piano works" when there is X and even, because of its structural radicalism, XI to consider.
    Personally, I enjoy XIII - and even XV, though, since this is for synthesiser with electronic music backing track it stretches the definition of a piano beyond breaking point.

    I certainly don't mind considering all those other Stockhausen pieces.

    And I'll consider them (and enjoy them) without moving my eyebrows at all!

    I would definitely recommend the Final Fantasy Piano Collections.

    Maybe also the Kingdom Hearts Piano Collections.

    And you might like Benyamin Nuss plays Uematsu.

    I forgot about George Crumb's Makrokosmos series. That's another great one.

    I prefer 'Going to war without the french is going to war without an accordian'. A much shorter piece but perhaps length isn't always an indication of whether a piece is substantial or not.

    It's true, length is no indicator!

    And Going to war... is also a cool piece. (My favorite is Nallan Void, the first one I heard.)

    My name is Ezra and I’m a young professional composer and pianist based in the United States. Some great works named so far, others I look forward to getting to know. If you are interested in contemporary solo piano music, I invite you to visit my website http://www.ezradonnercomposer.com, where I am offering free downloads of some of my recent music (2009-2011). Thanks for listening and cheers!

    Carl Vine's 1st piano Sonata gets a lot of play.
