Hi Carlos,

thanks for your message and suggestion.
Actually I have already learnt the first two minutes of Monday, Nuvole Bianche and Fuori dal Mondo.
Still to refine all of these three subpieces but I am very satisfied with the result and I think I will proceed in this way for now.

I want to complete at least one of these three.
To be honest memory and high concentration for more than 2 or 3 minutes are the major obstacles at the moment.

Anyway Fuori dal Mondo looks like the easiest and I should be able to get the whole 5 minutes ready in another week or two.

Even if probably I will be tempted to learn the first two minutes of Giorni Dispari in the next few days smile

Just to share that ONLY this week I started to study "La Nascita Delle Cose Segrete"; just because I fell I'm ready for it. Only now.
I don't know your talent, or your musical background, but you should add some confidence before studing Einaudi. He is a great composer/interpreter and it's not easy to reach is level of "sound".
As I said, I don't want to discourage you, I just wanted to share my opinion.
Good work!

Finished learning I giorni - god it's beautiful. Now I just need to polish up the sections since getting as good red-dot take isn't going to be easy with little jumps and 10ths at the end.

Less than 1wk to go till San Francisco! The stage itself is rather small'sh so even though I'm on the right hand side I'm hoping I'll still be able to see the keys, we'll see..

I've really got to set aside some time so I can get the first 3 pieces I've learned of Einaudi up on the "The Tube" smile

Well,

"thank you" is "Grazie a lei"
(you know in Italian we use the third person, if you feel to treat him as a friend "Grazie a te"
"performance" is actually used in Italian, so you can leave it
"moving" may be "commovente" if you mean "moving to tears", or "toccante" if you mean "touching the heart".

so you may say something like:
"Grazie (a lei), una performance davvero toccante" or
"Grazie (a te) per questa performance cosi' commovente"

"Thank you, a really moving performance"
"Thank you for such a moving performance"

smile

Oh boy! I finally got around to getting my hotel for next Saturday. Priceline accepted my offer of $75 for a 4-star hotel, and I'm at the Pfister, which (I believe) is right across the street from the performing arts center.

can't wait can't wait can't wait. smile

Great! And you should aspire to complete all the three... why not?
As I said, I'm studding "La Nascita Delle Cose Segrete" and fortunately I'm able to play by memory after few atempts, so I'm already in the middle of the piece, and I'm loving it.

I'm on board. For us, it would probably have to be after, since we have a lot going on during the day. I'll check back in a day or two.

Given how often Einaudi visits San Francisco I'd guess the most likely meeting place would be out there and not here in middle section of the country.

Wow. I'm so jealous. I'm very new to Einaudi's music. I would love to see him in concert. Seems unlikely that he would ever venture down my way though. I'll have to take a trip if he returns next year.

Just started learning my first Einaudi piece. I'm learning I giorni. I plan to get the "Best of" book and learn more though.

That would work better for me, too, as I am cutting it very close indeed with flight times; my plane is due in at 4:40 and then I have to get to the hotel and check in. eek If I miss my connection or if the flight's more than an hour or two delayed I'm hosed, but there weren't really any other options for me flight-wise.

I'd love to get together for a concert rehash. Maybe we could meet up in the line for autographs if Einaudi follows his usual routine of coming out after the show, and then go grab a drink or something. I've got a gruesomely early flight the next morning but I'll probably be too keyed up after the show to go straight to sleep anyway.

Is it just me, or does Einaudi bear an uncanny resemblance to Larry David from "Curb your enthusiasm"? eek

Just got this letter from my stepmother, who lives in Seattle, so when I saw Einaudi had a Seattle concert date I urged her and my dad to go see him, which they did. Here's her report on the show:

"We loved the concert. Your Dad's words... he is a serious and dignified performer. I thought he was also gentle, thoughtful and brilliant. When he finished playing he withdrew his hands from the keyboard as if he was unplugging himself. He then turned his head and smiled. The crowd would go wild with clapping. He played for 90 minutes which went by in a hurry. It was a solo concert. He played 10 plus compositions that lasted maybe 10 minutes each. He played new works first then I recognized three towards the end. He played one encore and the audience lusted for more but he waved gently and walked off stage. We didn't wait to see him after the concert cause your Dad has a serious get home syndrome and off we flew. There was about 300 plus fans in the audience. They all knew him and his works. At the end of one piece Einaudi was winding up with a crescendo and abruptly stopped. An audience member whooped with glee then the audience clapped wildly. I was surprised by the ending and thought at first that the sole whooper had accidently whooped.
We had a great time and really appreciate you sending us to hear Einaudi."

I'm guessing that the piece with a crescendo and abrupt stop was Divenire. smile

I love that description!!

I'm so hyped about the show!! My wife does not know too much about Ludovico Einaudi, hoping she becomes a fan.

My wife and I are going to Jalapeno Loco before the show. Not sure if we will have time afterwards for drinks.

I had a show at the theater where Einaudi performed earlier this week, and the stage manager mentioned him to me. I told him how he had become popular through KDFC. KDFC has generated a fair amount of popularity for another pianist composer, Wim Statius Muller, even though his recordings are out of print, so I am trying to get him to come for the series I tune for. He would fit into our series World Music.

San Fran's show was EPIC!

Great seats (couldn't see the keys though) frown but I did see the pedals and yep, he does use the SOFT one quite often also smile

I was so chuffed that he played some pieces from I giorni and also Una Mattina also. Since I have just finished learning I gironi I was VERY happy he played this, and also Nuvole Bianche!

Was a great personal concert. He wasn't there with the strings & co but it was great. Was nice to get a picture with my wife and him afterward also (still on the camera).

I love how humble he is and how much he "moves" the audience who watch/listen to him.

Enjoy ML -

Steve, I believe your descriptor of Epic is equally appropriate!!
It was the first time I have seen a composer/solo pianist perform live.
I was very curious as to how the dynamics would translate live. Can't wait to see him again!!!

My wife knew nothing about Ludovico Einaud going in. On the way home she told me she thought it was going to be boring. However, it ended up being the most beautiful piano music she ever heard, and she struggled to hold back tears several times during the performance.

(I'll eventually post a couple pics if any turned out)
