bortkiewicz - piano concerto no 1 - IMO this is up there with rach's own

scriabin - yes he is very different, but he has the same heart on sleeve melodic touch, to me

liadov's piano works - lots of great stuff
arensky - particularly the piano concerto and 1st piano trio
scharwenka's 4 piano concerti - all in minor keys, like rach's own - and filled with awesome memorable melodies

Why are speaking mostly about piano music?

Scriabin Poems are brilliant.
Liadov's Magic Lake is unique.
Scharwenka's Violin Concerto is something you never forget

I know the music isn't related to Sergei's, but I like Rach and I like that, so it fits into place...

Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 1. Not the world famous No. 5, the No. 1.

There's something about that piece thats immensely captivating. It's also fun to play, as there's alot of movement.

I also like the second movement(!) of Ravel's piano concerto in G.

Poulenc's piano concerto in c is very beautiful too.

What about Poulenc's Concerto for 2 Pianos? Ravel's "Alborada", Brahms's "op.117, op.119"? :D

I don't like postromantic music. Rachmaninoff is as good as it gets.

Good comment about Bortkiewicz, Da Real. Continuing the “if you like rach...youll also love…” I have to say that among all composers Rachmaninoff concertos in my mind close to Mozart concertos, kill me but it is how I feel. Medtner? Isn’t is the same as Rachmaninoff only without a melody and understanding what a composer whanted to say?

Rgs,

Maybe Scriabin's "Vers la Flamme"? I watched a video yesterday with Horowitz playing it. Simply amazing!

i definitely love all of them.. I think bortkiewicz is the best contender to rach.. I wish can be my personal piano teachers.. :)
