    There is no 'best'; only people's 'favourites'. :-)

    Each pianist has his or her strengths. I like Murray Perahia a lot. Martha Argerich is more well rounded but she plays loud and too fast.

    I like Sokolov and Krystian Zimermann and Radu Lupu in his younger days.

    Steven, I'm sure you realize that you blew it when you asked for the best living pianist then limited the choices to the three you've heard of. This is silly.

    EDIT: This is funny. Two TD's. Didn't you notice how many names were mentioned OTHER than the original three choices? This was just asking for it.

    I like Lang Lang's style and he's a charming person too.

    Richard Goode is OK but I do wish he wouldn't suck gobstoppers whilst playing.

    Don't like Stephen Hough - he's creepy.
