    It depends - For piano its Svyatoslav Richter. For organ its a three-way tie between Olivier Latry, Daniel Roth and Stephen Tharp.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    In my view that is an impossible question, how do you compare a pianist to a violin player, or brass or woodwind. There are too many variables, and as many opinions as there are people; one may excel at playing concerto, another at sonatas or one at Baroque, another at Romantic. You may as well ask "how long is a piece of string"?
    Cheers MIKE.

    Wa.. It's difficult to choose one! But for now, maybe I like Chopin most. I want to explore classical musicians more

    I see "the best classical musician" as being someone who is on the cutting edge of modern progress.
    That includes carrying all the classical traditions of every global cultural history.
    That's a difficult position to be in today, in between the traditional and the modern technology.
    The modern technology expects you to be able to produce music by simply turning it on, which is available,
    while the traditional expects you to be a symphony composer and player of all symphonic instruments.
    That's classical on demand, royalty-free, with improvisation expected to sound real.
    Who's doing that right now, with a modern media sensibility?

    That's who's got my vote as best classical musician.
