Who are the most prominent pianists today?

I know of Martha Argerich, Lang Lang and Evgeny Kissin. Care to expand this list for me?

    Here are some I can think of:

    Krystian Zimerman

    Mikhail Pletnev

    Daniel Barenboim

    Benjamin Grosvenor

    Vladimir Ashkenazy

    Marc-andré Hamelin

    Leif Andsnes

    Helene Grimaud

    Boris Berezovsky

    Freddy Kempf

    Mitsuko Uchida

    Adding to the list:

    Howard Shelley

    Maurizio Pollini (he might retire soon because of health)

    Murray Perahia

    Nikolai Lugansky

    Ronald Brautigam

    Stephen Hough

    Yuja Wang

    Of those above, in my opinion Stephen Hough is at the front of the class.

    A comment on a prior response, both Ashkenazy and Barenboim are basically conductors now rather than pianists.
