It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
I'm a cheesy guy so most of the music I hear are ballads. One piece that I'm really into is Michael Nyman's The Departure, from the movie Gattaca. It's such a beautiful movie and the soundtrack is as inspiring as the movie.
I'm not finished listening just yet, but, the first ten minutes have been so beautiful, that I had to pause it so I could share it here. What a wonderful selection for all of us beginners. It is such a joy to stumble upon beautiful music that is within our reach.

Some lesser known more recent composers I am really loving right now, some of this stuff is not all easy listening, but then I love a bit of atonality and musical complexity to listen to, I find it very engaging indeed, for me, it's like good food for the brain .. and we find some athletes of the piano indeed.
orchestral work that just blows my mind away.
Piano Concerto No. 1 ( with score, I love reading scores while listing at times )
Shame you need to start at 4 and have Lang Lang silky skills to play some of this stuff. If I could, I'd be all over it playing that stuff
