Modern Classical - Recs Appreciated

Have recently been getting into classical and playing piano, I am seeing both Ludovico Einaudi and Olafur Arnalds live in the next 3 weeks. Would very much appreciate any recommendations for classical albums, or quality music to learn on piano
1Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks


The album that made me start looking into classical as a whole, I found it a couple of years ago but have only recently given it the attention it deserves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVN1B-tUpgs
2Johann Johannsson
Fordlandia


Gorgeous melodies and a wide range of influences, found out about him from the song "Sun's Gone Dim" and I've been hooked ever since. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og9QtUJZ8iI
3Olafur Arnalds
...And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness


One of my favorites, if I see Gleypa Okkur live I might cry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRxtLZtM880
4Ludovico Einaudi
Divenire


One of the rare albums that captivates me from start to finish. Seeing him at the Sydney Opera House. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50zewk5WAUM
5Clint Mansell, Kronos Quartet & Mogwai
The Fountain


Both this and the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack are wonderful, and sound wholly unique from any other classical I've heard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYfdY4Sl-EQ
6Matryoshka
Laideronnette


Beautiful mix of post-rock, electronic and classical, in a similar vein to Kashiwa Daisuke but with female vocals included and far more subdued than Kashiwa's work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dEHBs60zlI
7Yasushi Yoshida
Grateful Goodbye


Another artist similar to Kashiwa and Worlds End Girlfriend, more hit and miss but some moments in this album are breathtaking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMfk17nxlpk
8Joe Hisaishi
Spirited Away


One Summers Day is a perfect song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIybK0OH2uI
9Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki
Symphony No. 3, Op. 36


The saddest, most emotive classical album I own. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXkuF5XOEm0
10Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Symphony No 6. in B-Minor, Op. 74


One of the few older classical pieces that I adore, I don't really know what it is about older classical but I simply don't enjoy it as much. Any and all recommendations are appreciated
