I found the video cool because her music was very Einaudi-like. Typical pan music also cool but is mostly Caribbean in style.

I really liked that video, 8 octaves! You're right; the music was much more minimalist and Einaudi like than the typical steel drum music you hear in the tropics.

The recording of the Verona concert I attended last July was shown on SkyArte TV in Italy, and some nice person uploaded the show to YouTube. I'm having fun reliving the concert, not to mention being able to stay dry this time! The sound engineers did a great job of filtering out the sound of rain, thunder, and crinkling of ponchos. thumb

On the whole, its just pretty straightforward stuff.


Yes, but sometimes the hardest part is to get the right sonority. Playing the notes and chords as they are on the scores it's the first phase- and the easier, IMO -. Getting the right "sound" it's a "life time" job.
Anyway, why don't you try to read the scores to choose a piece that you fell comfortable? And, first of all, don't give up and don't forget to have fun.

Oh, I'm jealous. I wonder what he'll play?! And what will the opera be singing????

We need a full report from somebody who goes to that concert!

The Einaudi facebook page recently posted some exciting news: There's a full-length documentary film about Einaudi, called "Ludovico Einaudi: Between Space and Silence" that will be released sometime later this year. I hope we'll be able to see it in the States.

This is what I call: "putting pressure"... smile
My arrangement is nothing more than try to "colorize" some passages. The melody doesn't offer too much space to improvise.

Oh, and I have to confess that I have a job overdue... You asked me about the final part of the piece "Two Trees" blush :

"Ive been trying to work out that coda by ear, too. What do you have for the very last chord? Ive been playing a C-major inversion, but Im not sure thats right. And what note are you starting the run in the right hand on at that part? Ive been starting on F and ending at E, but ditto with the confusion."

I'm sorry. I have not forgotten but as I (still) did not write the final part, I'll have to sit down at the piano to answer you.



And Monica, I dind't forgot this one... I will try to recall the coda to answer this one smile

Don't worry. I think this is another marketing project, so I'm sure this film will be available worldwide.

Jessiebear, Einaudi's Brisbane concert on Wednesday was a triumph, with a sell-out audience on their feet shouting their applause. You are in for an incredible evening.

So today I started playing the song I've been mucking about with for a couple of weeks. Got to a place and was totally lost! Turned out I was playing a different song altogether!
I meant to play Bella Notte but absentmindedly started on Julia and what do you know it's really similar until you get halfway and it turns to octave reaches, whoops!
I should take more notice of what I'm doing, no wonder the timing seemed out LOL.
BTW totally enjoying his 'Best of' book despite getting lost!


ETA I'm going to get Mr E's signature tatooed on my arm as in the pic, he has changed my life for the better smile

What's everyone up to at the moment?
My new favourite is Inizio, it's nicely challenging but not too much!

Seems to have been very quiet around here lately ...

I've decided I'll try and polish up something (of Einaudi's, of course) for the May recitals. I get nervous just thinking about it but I feel I should dip my toe in the water at last. Trouble is, which piece? I can 'play' many, all with heaps of mistakes, so which one to concentrate on is a toss-up at the moment. Come un Fiore? Leo (if I can improve my trills)? Dietro Casa (if I can keep my RH fingers together more)? Or something else?

Difficult decision - they're all so lovely.

I've been working on "Le Onde" since last ABF Recital. It's a long piece and it seems "unplayable" at first... my hardest problem was to figure it out with my short fingers but I can say that I feel very comfortable playing it "coast-to-coast" now. smile
This is a kind of milestone. "Le Onde" was one of the first pieces I always wanted to play but I never had skills to play it. This kind of pieces are perfect to measure our progress: impossible to play some time ago /, nicely done now.
Time to polish it.

Le Onde is yet another prime example of the category of Einaudi pieces I like to call "Pieces Where the Notes In and Of Themselves Are Not That Hard But Getting The Expression and Dynamics Right is a Whole Different Matter."

It took me forever to get a semi-decent recording, and then I let it lapse out of my repertoire. It would be interesting to pick it up again some time--now that it's been a few years--and see if I have any better luck with it.

Agree.
Le Onde is the most "expensive" piece so far for me. I took 1 month and half to get it, which is too much. On the other hand, I'm working on it expressions and dynamics so I can say I'm already testing it with different approaches - that's the best part smile at least for me -. Having it memorized also helps.

Only two days until "The Taranta Project" is released. If you pre-ordered the album you get two early pieces downloaded. Here's a video of a live performance of one of the pieces, "Taranta." It's not the usual Einaudi, that's for sure; it's more like a combination of Diario Mali and the highest-energy pieces off Nightbook and In a Time Lapse. I really like it:
