Rachmaninoff is another great pianist- he has made some wonderful compositions, but piano is one of the central instruments that appear in lots of his works. He was a virtuosic composer and his piano works are incredibly difficult, yet impressive.
It would be wrong to include Mozart, and not Beethoven as he was also an outstanding pianist.
