The pianists included here all influenced-or were influenced by-Russian piano history in some notable manner.
They include French, Belgian, Irish, German, Italian, Polish, Lithuanian, Georgian, Romanian, Armenian, Moldovan, Azerbaijani, Ukrainian, Belarusian, and Japanese pianists – and probably others I'm forgetting.
For the most part though, they are Russian.
At the moment I am listing them alphabetically by surname. In the future I hope to expand this into categories by teacher and conservatory.
The following letters, E through Z, have only names and photos. When I complete the list I'll start to write short biographies of the lesser-known pianists.
