Composers you wish wrote for the Piano

Who are some composers that did not write piano music, but you wish they did?

My vote: Tartini

One fundamental issue with this subject is whether composers who deliberately eschewed writing for the piano would have been any good at it if they'd not done so; I think it unwise not to bear that factor in mind when considering choosing particlar composers for this category.
