What is your favorite piano concerto (only one)?

I honestly can't list any one piano concerto as my favorite, as I keep finding more that mesmerize me. I love the Beethoven, Mozart, and Rachmaninoff concertos, but most musical people will immediately name those ones.

Perhaps I can give my favorite underrated piano concerto. For now, it is Kurt Atterberg's Piano Concerto in B-flat minor. Atterberg's Concerto is a uniquely beautiful Scandinavian piece, full of creative and magical moments, and which to me defies most comparison, though one can hear influences of Blues music, as well as Tchaikovsky like motifs, especially in the last movement. It is a very creative work, which still managed to remain fresh without feeling the need to submerge itself in modernism.
