A bit obvious, but anything from the sound track of The Piano might strike your keys.

Damn my quick fingers. I gave a GA to @YoKoolAid before reading the Smashing Pumpkins part. Admins, have it removed post haste!
although Chopin, Debussy, and Haydn are all fine choices

Peace of our Minds by John O’Hurley and John Marston (beautiful cello and piano).

Piano Solos by George Winston

Stones in the Road (especially the title song) by Mary Chapin Carpenter. This album has guitars and vocals, but the feeling is similar to the other 2 ^^ and I think you will like it a lot.

Gymnopedie by classical composer Erik Satie.

His Celtic Music for Piano by Keith Duke

@GladysMensch Not sure what you have against SP, but the song I referenced is a piano piece which I think is quite nice.

Billy Joel and Elton John come to mind.
