It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Loc: St. Louis, Missouri
So I've been listening to nothing but piano music for months now, and I've been loving it. I'm starting to run my list of music dry though.
I listen to classical every once in a while, but mostly I love to listen to the more new-age style of playing. I've been mostly listening to David Nevue, Ludovico Einaudi, and Yiruma. On top of that, I spend a lot of time just surfing Youtube, trying to find more original compositions to listen to.
I'm starting to get into composing my own music, and only have a little over a year under my belt, so I'm just trying to listen to more and more music, as it's helped me a ton lately.
I'm a huge fan of Nevue and Einaudi, too. Here are some of the other composers for piano I also really like:
Ralph Zurmuhle Josh Winiberg Giovanni Bomoll David Lanz Dax Johnson Alessandra Celletti George Winston Jon Schmidt/The Piano Guys Robin Meloy Goldsby Wim Mertens Yann Tiersen Stephan Moccio Elijah Brossenbroek The O'Neill Brothers Stanton Lanier
I don't listen to New Age, but have you listened to piano jazz? It is rich and rewarding and there is a lot of great stuff out there: Bill Evans, Dave Brubeck, McCoy Tyner, Teddy Wilson, Art Tatum, Keith Jarrett, and lots, lots more. I am sure some of the music will speak to you.
