Thanks so much, Kawaigirl. I think I'm up to nine pieces for the CD. Your work is really beautiful.

Has anyone recorded Limbo? I'm thinking that someone mentioned it as the easiest one, so it would be nice for her to try that to start.

No, Kawaigirl, I'm not planning to play any right away. I have so many piano projects going now that I can't make much progress on any of them. I am sure that I will hear an Einaudi piece--like I did with both Croatian Rhapsody and Rachmaninoff's C# minor prelude, both that I'm learning now--that I absolutely must play this very second. Then I will push something aside on my plate and do it. Right now Rachmaninoff hunts me down every day and drags me to the piano--he has hooked me like a drug, and it will be months before I finish that piece.

Mr. Super-Hunky--I found my "Best of" book at Amazon for $24.13. Of course, you get free shipping with any purchase over $25.00, so I bought another book so I could get "free" shipping. Capitalism at its most effective!

Nancy

Euan made a recording of Limbo in Recital #3. His link doesn't work but you can download the 2nd zip file and the piece will be found in there.

Or, if that's too much work, here's a version of "Limbo" I recorded on my trusty Zoom for my Christmas CD:

"Limbo" by Ludovico Einaudi

p.s. I just noticed I really need to edit out some of that dead space at the beginning... there's about a 12 second pause before the music starts, sorry.

Nice Monica! Limbo That song sounds relaxing. And it doesn't sound like it would be too hard to play. I went ahead and ordered his greatest hit book from Amazon .

I really like Nefeli and Le Onde,,,,,,,,,,beautiful.
I am looking forward to getting the sheet music and seeing just how hard those pieces are to play.

O. K. You all made a convert out of me. I just ordered The Best of Ludovico Einaudi--paperback from Amazon.com. Came to $28.80 with the shipping and handling.
Had a real problem ordering it, as every time I sent it my basket, they kept including some other item with it for and additional $20.00. After a number of tries, I finally got the unwanted item out of my basket and just the book should be arriving.

Now to wait patiently for its arrival, sometime between Jan 19-23. Can't wait to play some of those gorgeous pieces. Gaby Tu

Isn't that a coincidence? When I ordered my music book by Einaudi I had a little trouble also! Everytime I went to the Shopping cart I saw that they had put EXTRA items in my basket, items I didnt even order! It took me a while but I finally figured out how to have only the music book in my shopping cart!

Maybe this is a new marketing method. Keep on adding unwanted items to their cart and out of irritation consumers will buy. \:D Maybe they are trying to see how many times they can do it befor they lose the customer. \:D

I was really frustrated trying to get the extra items out of my cart. No matter how many times I deleted it,they would put it back. I was almost tempted to forget the whole idea of buying the Einaudi book, but finaly had success.

Well,today The book arrived. What a treat. I sat down and played through the first piece--Limbo. Gorgeous. I understand that it is the easiest one in the book. Some of those chords in the left hand are reminiscent of the Chopin Funeral March. Interesting.

Now, to listen again to the recordings made by Kawai Girl, Monica and others so that I can get a better understanding of how these should sound. My playing of Limbo seems to drag a bit, and I don't think I am bringing out essential notes the way I think they should go. I notice that Kawai Girl and Monica both bring out the melody of the pieces they are playing ,so that it stands above the continuous flow of the rest of the music. Gaby Tu

O.K. Mr. super-Hunky. quit teasing us and play it for us to hear. I envy you in warm and Sunny Scottsdale. I'm up here in the NW, where we are just beginning to thaw out after several days of snow and freeze. Impossible to drive in that stuff. Cars skidding all over the place. It is now raining, and a deep fog is settling in. Well, back to the piano.
I'm really excited about Einaudi. Gaby Tu

Well, hee it is 4 days later and you might want to put your socks back on! \:\(

Once again, my acoustic recording is very "muffled" and "mooshy" sounding.

I really don't get it as the piano itself sounds incredible...almost like a concert hall!

My digital records crystal clear but lacks the resonance and sustain of the acoustic....but its so clear!.

I guess I'll record on the digital as my acoustic recordings just don't sound good.

\:\) I got my book today! I was hoping to see the song Una Mattina in the book, but I don't see it Kawii Girl[/b] or anybody else where did you see the sheet music for that song? Is that in a different book maybe?

I took a look at the song Nefeli the Combined left and right hand appregios played together scare me I think I'll hold off on that for a while.
You're all right the Limbo would be the easest song to start off on. Ombre doesn't look too hard but I don't believe I have heard a recording of it. I think the Le Onde song would be easier to play before attempting the Nefeli. I am anxious to hear recordings for all the songs in this book. I know I have a good selection from you all here on PW , Monica, Euan and Kawii Girl and maybe Mr Super Hunky when he is "good and ready" to send us all that recording! :p
Anyway right now I am working a couple of David Nevue pieces, Deep Heaven and Vigil, plus I am working on a couple of classical pieces. So, I may not get to work on the Einauadi book for a few months. In the meantime, I am going to be listening to as many recordings as possible out this book so I can get a "feel for his music."

Hi Babs1,

Einaudi's Una Mattina piece can be found in either his "solo piano Una mattina" book or he also has another book called "the piano collection volume 1" and Una Mattina can be found in there as well.

Monica, in my case it's the room acoustics along with me over pedaling on everything.

Recording on the digital removes these two variables so I'll use it once again as I'm starting to get on my own nerves regarding this issue!

I've recorded another piece from Einaudi's "Best of...." called
La linea Scura

I'm still looking forward to hearing S-H's rendition of Nefeli even if it's on the digital \:\)

Beautiful Kawai Girl! \:\) You have been blessed, .......you have strong hands!
Now that I have the book I can follow along with the music as I listened to your beautiful playing! My hands would hurt after playing all those appregios at that tempo for five pages long! :p

Don't feel bad Mr. Super Hunky, I don't have a zoooooom either , I am still waiting for my fairy godmother to show up at the door! \:D

kawaigirl, beautiful job on the Linea Scura piece. I looked at the sheet music after hearing Euan's take of it some time ago, and the never-ending 16th notes scared me off. But it is a very pretty piece. Your recording quality was great, too. Those low bass notes were resonating through my headphones.

I feel like a hopeless copycat, but every time I hear you play something it makes me want to learn it too. \:\)

Hey Euan, when I played that Einaudi clip, the audio came through fine but the video was very bizarre...colors were all weird. Anybody else have the same problem?

Kawaii Girl[/b] You know what , I think you may have a point. I tried it tonight and I got through the first 2 pages just fine, with a little more practice I think I could get through the last 3 pages as well, so I am more confident than I was originally. ;\) It's actually easier to play than it looks. The left hand is easy all simple chords. It is an interesting song, very soulful. And I liked the way you brought out the melody........beautiful. However I am just a bit curious.Kawaiigirl did you record that on that famous Zoom that everyone here has been talking about? It was a good recording. I am still waiting for my fairygodmother to show up at the door with a zoom in her hands.....still waiting. . :rolleyes:

Monica[/b] I viewed the clip Euan sent and not only did a get a good recording but the video was fine , no weird colors on my end .
