Does anybody know of any good piano music? I want music where there is just a piano. Any suggestions?

There is no sig.

Any work by Eric Satie

'Gnossienne' and 'Gymnopedes' are his best known pieces - beautiful chill out music of the gentlest kind.

Go for a recording that retains the simplicity of the music and doesn't try to make it more dynamic than it should be.

A Windham Hill Artist that I started listening to a few years ago. Most of her early work is piano only.

Very chilling performances!

Exactly. These pieces lose their meaning when they're played fast by some piano players.
I have a compilation cd with all of the 'Gymnopédies' and 'Gnossiennes' played very slowly, it's wonderful, one could even say it was ambient music before it was even invented
Very sad tunes though.

Anything by Chopin, he's my favorite classical musician, his piano norturnes are even better then all his other stuff in my opinion

Also, a sond I absolutely have to recommend when piano is mentioned - alhtough a woman in singing (beautifully): Theatre of tragedy - A distance there is. Beautiful song, makes me dream...
