UV filters are not normally needed, but they are good to have for when you need to shoot in some specific situations, like e.g. near sea spray.

Polarisers are a must.

I find graduated neutral density filters very useful too (and contrary to popular lore, screw-ins are fine, if of the soft-edge type), even though admittedly you can often simulate their effect in post quite well.

As to brands, I have tried many over the years, and in my opinion the simple answer is that B+W mrc-nano filters are the best.

In my recent experience, though, URTH filters (the nano-coated ones marketed as "+") are equally good, and half the price.

Thank you, Marco for your guidance. I will look into all that you mentioned. It’s wonderful to be able to have the views of experienced photographers like yourself. It’s very helpful !
