It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Hey Monica. Tricky question to say which is my favourite albums since they all have some exceptional pieces. I have listened to "Divenire" and "I Giorni" more than the others so would have to say they're my favourites at the moment although that may change the more I listen to the others:)
I think the orchestration really adds to the "Divenire" tracks but I also like the simplicity (although not sure that's strictly the right word) of the solitary piano in the "I Giorni" tracks.
I just placed my order for the "best of" book. I was wondering where I could locate a list of places his music has been used. I tried IMDB for movie soundtracks but struck out. The Olympic commercial brought tears to my eyes.
I can't wait for my book to arrive.

LizAnne, I've Island Book too. The book has this pieces: -Ancora -Andare -Berlin Song -Dietro Casa -Divenire -Fairytale -High Heels -I Giorni -Indaco -Lady Labyrinth -Le Onde -L'Origine Nascosta -Love is a Mystery -Monday -Nefeli -Nightbook -Nuvole Bianche -Primavera -The Earth Prelude
The best way to choose one piece is studying it before starting to play it. Take a careful read of each one and you'll understand how difficult/easy it is for you.
In my case, I started playing 3 of them in this order, with constant progress: 1st - Nefeli 2nd - Monday (ABF Recital #24 submission) 3rd - Indaco (ABF Recital #26 submission)

Christmas for me will really be arriving on January 21, which is when Einaudi's newest album, In A Time Lapse, is released. But if you're like me and can hardly wait, here's an article about it that includes a link to the title track. It's beautiful. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait, can't wait...
You can listen to a sample (usually about 1 minute or more) of each of 20 potential 'songs' from the pre-release listing of Time Lapse on iTunes. It also says if you purchase the album (on iTunes) you will receive a digital eBook extra. Have to wait for January 21st. My birthday is early Feb
I agree, Carlos; that arrangement is breathtaking. I'm going to check out the whole album, because I like a lot of the composers mentioned on it (Richter, Part, etc.).
p.s. I have had the same problem with trying to use the embedded feature. Somebody, I forget who, told me to try putting merely the mixed up letters and numbers part of the YouTube tag, and that works like a charm.
In other words, rather than copying and pasting the entire URL when prompted, simply enter 'QmV6dyEi430' (without the single quotes). I don't understand why/how that works, but it does for me.
ooh ooh ooh. Einaudi just posted a concert date in the U.S. for this spring, hopefully one of many: May 21 in Washington D.C. I guess I'll wait and see if something a little closer to KY gets scheduled.

I think this time Einaudi chose a more classical path then in other albuns. I use to call him a "new-classic" composer (a mix between new-age and classical), but this time I identify sounds more from the classic side. I think it's natural: a composer evolves over time based on their life experiences.
