That's really sounding good, Carlos! thumb

Smurfette, "Islands" is a good start for Einaudi sheet music. You run the risk, however, of going back and buying "Best of" and then all the individual books. But there's no such thing as too much Einaudi, right? laugh

Thank you Monica! thumb
Now, I've to check in my new book if I was playing "Night" too wrong... smile

Smurfette, I'm with Monica: with "Islands" and "Best of" you will have a good collection of pieces to play.

This made me giggle. Einaudi having a practice session with his group, yes, he was really sitting like this and playing ( taken from youtube).

Perfect posture a teacher would say no ? laugh




Looks even more laid back than Valentina Lisitsa !

For beginners, don't follow that example. Now I have myself covered grin

Hi all! It's been a while since I posted here - I'm a bit more active on the Einaudi Facebook group (sorry!) - but since the release of Elements I thought it would be a great opportunity to stop by!

Who here is also learning some of the new pieces? What are your favourites? smile

One thing I've found on this album, more than his previous works, is that there are large hand spans required to play a lot of the chords. I've had to omit some notes in places because of it!

Nevertheless, I've learnt a few of the pieces (Night, Song For Gavin, Drop Variation, ABC, Numbers) which are on my Facebook page / YouTube channel, and I'm currently finishing Four Dimensions (one of the most requested pieces I've had!). If you have a spare few minutes, I'd love for you to check them out. smile

Also, if anyone would like to help me finish off notating the sheet music for Drop Variation using MuseScore then please let me know!

Nice to see you here again, Mark. thumb
I've been working on "Night" and I'm still in the "experiment" phase now. I find it suitable to do some changes on the arrangement just because they sound better than the original score. My work is based on what I heard on some live performances so this is a long process but that's what I like to do. My life duties don't allow me to play so often, but I'm enjoying the process smile

I've to congratulate you by your work and dedication. I'm one of yours subscribers on YT and it's always a pleasure to listen your versions. Thanks!

Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum and quite recently purchased a piano with the ambition to actually try to learn how to play it.
I also recently started to listen to various piano based music and i really like Ludovico Einaudi pieces, i like the mood in them very much.

So i'm trying to play some of his music and i have a question for you.

Some of the arpeggios have pretty big jumps (bigger span than my fingers can reach).
For example in "Monday" which i've fallen in love with, some of the arpeggios goes:
(LH) D - A - F# - A - F# ... E - B - G# - B - G# ...
How do you play that in the best way? The tempo is quite slow so there is time to move the hand, i'm just curious on what the best fingering would be?

Thanks Carlos! I am also in contact with you on YT and Facebook so I very much look forward to hearing your interpretation of Night! smile

Hi Mark/Johan welcome to liking Einaudi, join the club. smile

Not heard the album as yet, still working my way through Einaudi albums to get up to date, though did hear this last night, Solo piano versions from the album. Great stuff. thumb





JohanI

Monday, those sort of patterns are very common in einaudi pieces. Don't span arpeggios in the one hand position, even with bigger hand you could do yourself some harm and lead to tension and hurt yourself.

Some use combi of a bit of subtle wrist navigation ( I think it is called ) and move the hand over and use appropriate fingerings to be as ergonomic as possible, but better ask an expert you'll get a better answer. smile

Example, This lady plays a lot of beautiful Einaudi too, you can clearly see her hands there. It will come with praccy over time.

Hi Alexander!

Thank you verk much for the suggestions, i have quite good reach but it certainly don't feel comfortable trying to stay in the same position smile
The video was just what i needed, i'll hopefully be able to pick up some techniques from that as well.

I realize this is way above level but it's so beautiful and i just can't let go of the idea. Sometimes when i manage to hit the right keys at the right time it sounds enjoyable...

Alexander, thanks so much for the link to the Carpark sessions. I've listened to it several times already. Love the solo piano version of "Night." thumb

'Many thanks for getting in touch and for your interest in the film.

The documentary is still being finalised and we are looking at releasing it as soon as possible. We had to re-shuffle a few things to better serve the story.

We will be making an announcement soon regarding the film’s status.

Once again, many thanks for your interest.'

So Monica, Carlos, everyone - we have to be patient for just a while longer ... smile

Clever move contacting the production team, btw laugh

As for me. My "Night" is progressing slow, but it's getting "consistent". There is so many space to try different approaches to each session, that I lost endless hours enjoying each one. The problem is to decide which one fits better to keep the spirit of the piece.
I wanted to present it to the next ABF recital, but it's clear now that it's impossible to have it ready in two weeks...

Thanks, Marie!! Being patient is hard. laugh

"Night" is tough, Carlos. I've given up trying to play it as arranged in the sheet music collection. After listening to the Carpark Sessions over and over again, I'd *love* to be able to play the arrangement he does there... it sounds so delicate and, dare I say, simple... but Einaudi's "simplicity" has fooled me badly on many previous occasions.

My big news is that hubby has discovered that the International Association of Professional Numismatists annual meeting is being held in Amsterdam this year, the same week that Einaudi is playing there!! The concerts in the region are all sold out, of course, but there are tickets available on the secondary market at ridiculously inflated prices. While I am nervous about buying scalped tickets, I think it's worth it to see the Elements tour. So that's going to be our vacation this year. Concertgebouw, here we come! yippie

I started playing "Night" following original sheet, but I've to confess that Carpark version has been my guide so far. Hard to play, yes, but better than the original version. This is a huge challenge and I think this is one of the most difficult and *simple* piece to play. wink

Nice to know that you're going to travel do Europe! Good luck with the ticktes!

Dang, I spoke too fast. After looking into details of the trip, which included a 1500 Euro conference registration fee (!!) and likely airfare costs, we decided not to go to Amsterdam but instead to wait, nervously, for U.S. tour dates to be announced and try to catch the Elements tour closer to home and cheaper. Surely he will come to the States at SOME point, right?

I was wondering that too. So I quickly did a search and found this:

Ludovico Einaudi
Friday, October 21, 2016 at 7:30 PM
Birchmere Music Hall
3701 Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22305


But this is not listed on his website.

I saw that, too, scorpio. The venue appears to be some kind of nightclub/dinner theater place? At least the photo I saw had long tables and chairs and reviews mentioned that the food was good. I would prefer to hear him without the distraction of silverware clinking and waiters coming by to refill glasses etc. It also wasn't clear that it would be the Elements tour; it just said "Einaudi" with no mention of his ensemble or the phrase "Elements Tour." So I'm going to wait a while and hope that more dates in more traditional venues open up. Same thing goes with the one date I've seen in Montreal, which appeared to be part of a jazz festival.
