    Beethoven
    Chopin
    Mozart
    Haydn
    Liszt
    Debussy
    Grieg
    Brahms
    CPE Bach(Solfeggio in C minor is just incredible, I am almost at full speed with that piece)
    Schubert

    My all time favorite composer, be it for orchestra or piano, is Beethoven. Mozart comes very close and in general is my second favorite composer but that is mainly due to his symphonies. His piano works tend to be on the simplistic side. But he decieves you with the simplicity of the melody and makes things more difficult for the left hand by sustaining the Alberti bass pattern among other things.

    I'm working on CPE Bach's Solfeggio. It is an awesome piece, a toccata-etude of sorts. I am nowhere near able to play it fast.

    Props for including Grieg on your list, "the Chopin of the North" as I seem to remember some critic deemed him. Great composer for the piano.

    My current favorites are Chopin, Beethoven, and Ravel. If we're talking most important, however, it would be impossible not to include Liszt and Debussy.

    1. Beethoven
    2. Schumann
    3. Chopin
    4. Mozart
    5. Kapustin
    6. Bach
    7. Scriabin
    8. Liszt
    9. Rachmaninov
    10. Schubert

    Ten isn't enough to list them all- I'd add Debussy, Alkan, Ravel, Haydn, Brahms, and Prokofiev.

    If you've never listened to Kapustin, do so ASAP. He is the greatest pianist composer of the 20th/21st century.

    Also, how is Schumann not being consistently mentioned on these lists?
