Wouldn't it be less effortful for you to make your own list without having to follow the rules of the thread? Now that only one or two people have been voting for a long time, the list that is being worked toward is meaningless because it's neither the uncompromising personal opinion of an individual (which is useful), nor a group consensus, but some useless in-between.

Some remarks:
1) The process itself is half the fun. These list games have all started as, well,  games of favourites, not hallowed catalogues.
2) If both ends of a line are useful, I daresay points in between are far from useless.
3) Rule no.1 of these threads has always been no whining about the lists or the process. There's already a thread(s?) devoted to this very purpose. I'd appreciate posting there for any subsequent comments.

I doubt very much if an objective overview of piano works can possibly exist. Obviously, my own choices are personal and have no value beyond that, although I do try to point to works that are ignored through general ignorance of them. The consensus is also useless because invariably the participators have not listened to or gained knowledges of all the the works that are being promoted.

Chopin, Nocturnes - especially Nos. 13, 20 and 21.
You will be glad to know that Chopin's Nocturnes are already in the list, en bloc. This is a debatable point that has been discussed before and is not entirely to my satisfaction. Why for instance are Brahms's Klavierstücke not treated the same? That is the only reason I haven't been voting for them.
