I bought the Feb/March issue of Pianist magazine just because it had an intermediate-level Einaudi piece in it. (The Snow Prelude no. 2 from Nightbook) Thank goodness there was also a CD. This is going to be a challenge to learn. My first piece of new age music.

Re: bindings: I take everything that needs spiral binding in order to be used effectively at the piano to a local print shop that will shave the spine and insert a spiral. Very, very cheap, and the reduction in annoyance is priceless! I do the same with paperback cookbooks. I think my choral singing teacher gets a kickback from the print shop -- a lot of us end up going there and giving them new business.

You could say that.

I tell you what - if you like "New Age" music here is a tip:

Listen to some pieces by Greg Maroney. As a composer he runs circles 'round certain others that we won't name. But one of them hails from Montana originally. thumb

Greg Maroney is very good indeed, Furtwangler. Kawaigirl has done some lovely recital pieces of his. But I still like Einaudi better. wink

I'll give Maroney a shot.

I have to admit, a while back I bought a "New Age" piano CD off Amazon called Piano Dreamers or somesuch.
It was awful. Reminded me of the worst sort of plinky plonky muzak. I don't get that feeling with Einaudi. Well, mostly anyway.

Here's my latest contribution to the Einaudi thread:



I recorded it a while back but thought I might get around to doing a better take. Didn't happen. wink

I like Anthony's version better. I had a hard time making the middle chord section flow like syrup, for want of a better phrase. Mine's also much slower than the original. I didn't realize HOW much slower until I compared my video length to other youtube clips. Oops. whome

I knew you were working on that one for a little while Monica. Glad to get to hear it finally. I did notice it was a bit slow but then again I'm quite familiar with the piece so I could tell pretty quickly that you'd run longer than the album length.

As for me, I'm working on another short piece from Nightbook. I'll likely wind up posting a video whenever I get done with it even if I do wind up using it for a future recital. I simply cannot keep things until a recital because then I just sit around and not work hard enough on new stuff.

TTigg, I can't wait to hear whatever piece it will be for your recital entry. smile

Very nice, Mohan! Nefeli is such a pretty piece. smile I think you will find Divenire to be in a different universe difficulty-wise, though. eek

I like your web site, too. Very cool.

Wow, the Einaudi thread sank down for a whole month? bah

I figured now is a good time to dig it up as Einaudi will be making yet another trip to the USA this fall with confirmed stops in 4 cities so far.

Here are the dates so far:

+ 08/10/2010 - NEW YORK
+ 13/10/3010 - SAN FRANCISCO
+ 14/10/2010 - LOS ANGELES
+ 16/10/2010 - MILWAUKEE (USA)

Those are crazy backwards European style dates so don't get too confused trying to figure out what months 13, 14 and 16 are!

I have bought tickets for the Milwaukee show on Oct 16th and I'm taking my parents there as well. (Dad's birthday is the 16th so it works out nicely.) It'll be a 6 hour drive or so but it'll be worth it.

I'll keep updating the thread if more dates are announced. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on a concert because they didn't know about it. (Plus, I want tickets to sell so he decides to keep coming back!) whome

Haha, 'crazy'? cool
I work for an American company, and still don't understand your date system (which I have to use). Surely, it goes seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years. Why did you guys rearrange the days and months in the order? crazy

Good luck anyone going to the concerts, and anyone who is sitting on the fence and not sure, definately go for it - you won't regret it!

Haha yes American dates are so annoying...particularly dates like 6/7/10. June or July? Who knows? Why can't there be one standard?! (answer: there is, americans choose to ignore it ;-p)

Anyway back on topic, I've chosen Monday as my first Einaudi piece to learn. It looks fairly easy, apart from the fast bits. I'll try and upload a bit later.

I've got row E seats 3, 4 and 5. I'm guessing they sold the middle of the row first and then the seats on the end since I'm pretty sure that Monica bought some first.

I'm actually going to be in Milwaukee late this week (and only a few blocks away from the Marcus Center) so I may take a bit of time to scout out some of the hotels in the area and maybe try to figure out what else to do when we're there for the Einaudi concert in October.

Let us know what you find out, Anthony. I'd be especially interested in hearing about hotels in walking distance of the Center.

I did a quick search for Nearby Hotels

Possible things to do:
Milwuakee Public Museum or Art Museum

If you are flying in, my favorite Mexican restaurant in the city is Jalapeno Loco, it's across the street from the airport. Great staff, great service, great food!!

Ludovico Einaudi has added a show in Seattle on October 12th. It appears that Einaudi will go just about anywhere for a show as long as there is some nearby large body of water...

Oh man!! Now I am REALLY torn, because my dad, step-mom, and sister all live in Seattle. It would be an ideal way to combine a visit with family. What to do, what to do.

[Edit: Never mind. Oct. 12 is a Tuesday and I have to teach class that day. I have not yet reduced myself to the point of blowing off my work, even for Einaudi.]
