Good ones.

There's also Carlos Chavez, whose preludes are quite interesting in a 1930's sort of way. He also wrote a fantastic piano concerto that Arrau premiered and said was the most difficult concerto he ever learned. I wonder if there is a recording of that premiere stashed in some archive somewhere - it would be fascinating to hear.
