I attended the Einaudi concert at the Dome in Brighton last night. Very nice venue that I had not visited before. Anyone else on here that was there?

The concert was a long way from the gentle, melodic, tones of his at home broadcast of Time Lapse, and instead was a powerful example of energetic ensemble playing with heavy rhythm and beat, augmented by nice lighting effects. Quite an experience. A good one. Einaudi did play a couple of solos in the second half, to remind us of his core virtuosity.

The programme stated he will be touring the UK again in the autumn, and that current UK concerts are for the most sold out.

I have to say I came away extremely impressed with the 'electric cello'. That instrument makes awesome sounds.

I just started learning my first Einaudi piece. I've been working up to this and I'm SO excited!!

It's the easiest one in my book - Fairytale. Is that his easiest of all, d'ya think?

I would love to hear him live.

It will be added to BBC iPlayer (usually around an hour after the original program), not sure if that is available internationally or not ?

Welcome to the wonderful world of Einaudi. smile You realize that, like potato chips, you won't be able to stop at just one. wink

Farytale is easy, but I wouldn't say it was his easiest. That would probably be Corale or Limbo, imo.

BBC iplayer is not accessible outside of the UK. If you are desperate enough you can use a third party program - Expat Shield is one.......although you didn't hear that from me.....all right govner!

Can you recommend any other pianists for those of us who are Einaudi fans?

I mean "if you liked this, you may also like that..."

I've also been listening to a bit of Kevin Kern, some Craig Armstrong, a little bit of David Lanz, Jim Brickman, etc. A little bit of Michael Nyman even.

Any other suggestions, folks?

The pianists that remind me most of Einaudi are Josh Winiberg, Giovanni Bomoll, Fabrizio Paterlini, and Stephan Moccio.

Here's an example from each...

I have a question for those of you with much better ears than I (= everybody). I am trying to work out by ear the coda that Einaudi plays on "Two Trees" in his "Live From Home" concert. This coda is not shown on the sheet music.

(Here's a link to the mp3 file of the piece that Carlos so thoughtfully uploaded for us: Live From Home concert )

I've worked out most of the coda, but I'm not sure about the very last measure or two: In the left hand, is he playing a G-middle C-E chord? And does the ascending series in the right hand start on F and end up on E?

I may try to add it to my recital piece and re-record if I can figure it out correctly. I think it's a very pretty way to end the piece. smile

Hi, Monica
I'm traveling so I can't help you right now. Try to search in the original video what you're looking for.
looking forward to listen your piece!

Monica K. and Giuseppe, thanks for the suggestions.

They were all good.

I particularly liked Winiberg and Paterlini.

Many thanks guys.

Yes, there's something deeply satisfying about working on an Einaudi piece that I rarely get from other composers. smile I just started on "Discovery at Night" myself. The sheet music looked intimidating with all those sixteenth notes, but if I just try to make it sound like the album, it's not that hard.

it is very interesting to see how Einaudi works with the chords and how he combines the different notes. This is a detail that I greatly appreciate.
Simple, but brilliant.

I've been toying with the easier pieces. Hope to record Walk when my piano gets tuned this week. After that, Experience!

Okay, maybe not, but it's an interesting piece.

Thank god for facebook... I was skimming my newsfeed, and I came across a post talking about Einaudi's Washington D.C. concert "tomorrow" night. Some weeks ago I booked plane tickets, hotel, and a ticket for that show... but I had it in my head that it was WEDNESDAY night, and I had told my hubby I was leaving first thing Wednesday morning, and made arrangements to pick the kids up at school that afternoon etc.

Yikes! eek Words would not express how I would've felt if I had shown up a day late at the airport, but "deeply chagrined" comes close, as does "pissed." laugh

Now I just need to get done in a few hours everything I had planned to do in 30. Oh well. It's worth it to get to see Einaudi.

What a story, Monica...
C'mon, hurry up! Don't be late, you can't miss the concert. If it's the same as that seen in Lisbon, it is worth every effort.
Have fun!

I have now listened on Youtube to some compositions by Ludovico Einaudi and I felt he is extremely repetitive...

... it seems to me he uses the same repetitive tones, again and again...and again...

...and I could not make anything of it...

Am I missing something and if, what is it?

Thanks from Kristina.

It's a minimalistic kind of music. It sets a mood with a theme and builds on that. I find it can be relaxing, even dreamy, and indeed easy to listen to. You'll find there's little -actual- repetition, however. There are variations all the time, without disturbing the mood. You can hear much of Einaudi's music used in movies. Perhaps most famously in the French film Intouchables. A beautiful story highlighted by Einaudi's beautiful music.

Kristina1, I agree mostly. I can listen to one but am yawning for the second - maybe because it is as Allard says, so relaxing and dreamy. I doubt that I will get through trying to play one of his pieces but I'll give it a try. I do have I Giorni but had never heard it before following the links above. Someone had shared their score with me. I thought it was a bit like some of Yanni's piano pieces and I do enjoy them.

The Una Mattina album is mostly too slow for my taste. I like Divenire and In a Time Lapse much better. Not familiar with his older music.

Good question, Kristina.
Believe it, or not, I also think there are some (few!!!) repetitive pieces. But, I don't know if you are "missing something" or if you just don't like his kind of music, which is perfectly normal.

There are dozens of pieces of Einaudi and I can discover different "tones" in many of them. Can you be more specific regarding with the "repetitive" pieces? Which pieces are you talking about? Maybe we can guide you...

Got back yesterday from the Washington D.C. concert. It was amazing. I wish I had time to write a thorough review, but I'm turning around again and leaving tomorrow for Atlanta. But all those wonderful things everybody was saying above about this year's tour? They're all true. This is the third time I've seen Einaudi perform live, and I'd have to say it was the best, in part because it was the longest concert of the three, with two solid hours of music. heart

The biggest surprise? Newton's Cradle. As others have said, the live performance of this piece is just fantastic, WAY better than the album version.

I waffled between going to the D.C. show or the Chicago show, and I ended up going to D.C. because I found a cheap airfare. That turns out to have been a lucky break, because I read on Facebook that bad weather held up the ensemble in D.C., and they didn't make it to Chicago in time for the concert the next night. Einaudi gave an unplanned solo performance instead. I'm sure it was terrific, but since I've seen him play solo before I'm glad I got to see the ensemble this time. AnthonyB was at the Chicago show, though; if we're lucky he'll check in here and let us know how it went.

I recorded the show on my Zoom. After I get back from Atlanta I'll check it out to see if the sound came through good enough to upload some of it.

Thank you, Allard, Palmpirate and Carlos for your kind thoughts and explanations.

I have listened to “Divenire” and two or three other compositions by Einaudi and his music makes me feel concerned.

I feel very strongly – at the moment - that Einaudi tries to "lull my music-alertness" into a "false sense of security" by not promoting my thoughts, my alertness or even my love and feelings for music - like many classical composers succeed to do...

...Einaudi's music seems to me - at the moment - as if he tries to “lull my senses artificially” and take away my alertness and I am not quite convinced...

I feel – at the moment – that Einaudi "has found a niche" somewhere... it appears to me he is not quite pop-music, but he is not that far away from it either

Perhaps I should listen to him again ... later on... to see...

Thanks from Kristina.
