This is a good idea for the 'Links' section of the new site (although I'd want to restrict to pages that are definitely official, if such can be determined at all).

Thanks for that list Yteng. Good work, and if you find any more keep us posted !

I think you should now proceed and create a worldwide pianist link directory. Surely there must be one or two Chinese pianists with their own homepage ! :P

No seriously, a list of famous pianist pages is a good idea (though it will always be a duscussion who belongs in that category and who doesn't) but one should not attempt to collect as many as possible. It will turn our site into a link farm and make maintenance impossible. So let's try and stick to the names that everybody knows.
