My enjoyment starts to go down a little here. Bartok certainly my choice. I have heard and own music of about 93% of the composers on this list.

Erik Satie, another genius of piano music.

The 20th century is imminent. I can't wait!

Satie is perhaps my favorite composer ever. His catalogue seems to grow deeper through time. He was innovative, unorthodox, and he had a wicked sense of humor.

Of those I know in this list (not too many I must admit), I vote for Bartok.
The Robert Fripp of classical music.

Battle between the two Russians. Gotta go with Rachmaninoff over Stravinsky.
