    The survey will only hold ten (10) items. Sorry. Plus, he's thought of more as a symphonist than an exponent of piano literature.

    Yeah his solo piano works were complete junk, but the piano parts in his later chamber works are some of the most beautiful I've ever heard.

    That is as crude and stupid a statement as I have ever heard. I've played a good deal of his piano output and, while it may not be in the Brahms or Chopin class, and it does not always lie well under the fingers, there is a wealth of beauty there. And if anybody says that Dvorak had no affinity with the piano I dare them to listen to the piano concerto and the 4-hand slavonic dances.
