Matt Bellamy.

Matt Bellamy is in muse who are a three piece band from england. This guy is a fantastic pianist. I have seen a lot of good pianists whose names escape me.

Yes he is wonderful. Have you seen a video of him playing something whilst using a blue-glowing ball to roll up and down the piano? It sounds really nice!

Good lord, yes...my opinions differ QUITE greatly:

(in no particular order)

Haaken Austbo
Cyprien Katsaris
Grigory Sokolov
Chuan Qin
Anton Kuerti

 The two most talented pianists I've interacted with are MT and MAH.

koji (STSD)


Chuan Qin goes to my college, and is in my teacher's studio.  He played Debussy Images Bk II for a masterclass and it was some of the best playing I have ever heard.  You never know when you fill find great playing!

Santiago Rodriguez... it's been said that he was born to play Rachmaninov. I can't speak for his interpretations of other composers, but when it comes to the Russian master, there is no one I'd rather listen to.

I had been listening to other interpretations of Rachmaninov daily for months: Horowitz, Lisitsa, Richter, Pollini, Argerich and a score of others... hoping in vain to find a gem. Rodriguez is that gem. The others are good, but Rodriguez is truly masterful in comparison. His technique is so good that it becomes transparent, and his shimmering playing shines with dynamic range. The moment I heard his rendition of Preludes G#min and Bmin, I knew I'd struck gold. His interpretation of Concerto No.3 is also unparalleled, and recorded with clarity.

It's an absolute shame that he's not better known.
