My personal all-time favorite is Josef Hofmann. Even if I don't agree with ALL of his interpretations, I respect them. If I could ever play even half as intelligibly and beautifully I would die a happy person :). I have many other favorites which include Richter, Horowitz, and Argerich, all for different reasons.

Władysław Szpilman is the one and only pianist i like most.He was the great pianist who died in 2000 :(. The Pianist is the movie, which is based on his autobiographical book recounting how he survived the Holocaust.Due to this reason i watched this movie 15 times and still eager to watch this movie. .Szpilman studied piano in Warsaw and Berlin in the early 1930s.i am hardcore fan of his piano playing skill still i know he is not more.I have downloaded many sound tracks of the movie Pianist and listen it when i fell worry.The music reminds me how he survived during the Holocaust and i forget my worry.

Marry me, please.

I vote Hofmann a million times!
