Thanks, Alexander! I had never heard that Snow Prelude #3 before. It's not the prototypical Einaudi, is it? But it's still very charming and cheery. thumb

...and it doesn't sound all that easy to me, either! That "Easy Pieces" collection is sorely misnamed.

Okay, Carlos, so I'm about 50% there on your "Night" transcription. I've made a couple of changes here and there (mostly to make it easier! crazy ). I'm still having trouble on the sections where a quarter note in the left hand lands on a right hand note that's NOT supposed to be emphasized... but I'm persevering, because the piece is just so beautiful.

One snag is that "Night" is one of my son's favorite Einaudi pieces, so when I'm practicing it in my usual painfully slow manner and making mistakes, he bellows in dismay, "Mom, you're killing my ears!!" eek So I can only work on it while he's at school.

I must be making progress on "Night." Today my son was going to head outside for a walk when I started practicing the piece, and he stopped and said "I'm going to wait until the good part is over." laugh

Wow Monica! I'm really looking forward to listen your version. IMO changing a piece it's not a crime. Do it at your way Monica, because i know it will be amazing.
And I bet your son stayed inside all the day! thumb


Meanwhile... Ludovico was in Lisbon presenting the Elements concert. No much to say: Ludovico is Ludovico and the musicians are all very very good.
We were in the 2nd row, and my friend took really nice pictures:

Back to the audience again......
Is he shy?
I'd much rather have watched his face and hands.
It's a brilliant concert regardless.

Agree Medden.
IMO he's acting like a real "Maesto". I think it's the end of "a Pianist with an ensemble" era.

I'm just coming back to PW after almost a year away. Since I had been logged off of PW, when I came to this thread it took me to the first page. Did you know that the first post in this thread was made in 2006? Wow! Anyway, I hope you'll all let me share a piano update, because (as you'll see) Einaudi is front and center in it.

Last summer, we moved halfway across the country and I started a new job last August, so it's been more than a little crazy. But my Einaudi pieces were really the main thing that made it possible for me to keep playing. I just had a stack of his pieces that I'd already worked up, set those on top of the piano and even if I was dead tired, I'd play through one or two before going to bed. Then a variety of things came together and in March I bought a new (to me) acoustic piano (yay! I had only had a digital for the last seven years). So as you can imagine, I've been playing a lot more!

Anyway, in January, I was invited to the annual music party of a new colleague. I played Le Onde. It was the first time I'd played publicly for many years, and the first time in many many years to play in a recital-format, and as it happens, I crashed and burned rather stunningly. grin But that's quite alright, people were kind and the party itself was wonderful. Most of the musicians were pianists or guitarists, but one of the other attendees played the cello. He played a piece from the Bach cello suite, and he played just beautifully. I was completely captured by the tone and the sound and feeling he created. And there's nothing like hearing a beautiful instrument, beautifully played, in someone's living room!

So after it was all over, I introduced myself and casually mentioned that I'd always wanted a cello friend, and that I hoped someday to have the chance to play some Einaudi pieces that are written for strings and piano. Well, wouldn't you know it, he said he'd be interested in that and (in spite of my crash and burn) gave me his email and said we should get together.

So of course I bought the score for Einaudi's cello collection right away!

We got together with him and his wife in February and picked out what to play, and then we went to his house in March. He has an ancient Korg stage piano (the sounds come from one of those 3 inch floppy discs!) but it worked and we practiced Reste Con Me.

The Korg was ... Interesting. It didn't have a music stand, so we had to kind of prop the music up and lean it against the wall, and then in order to turn pages, I had to reach waaaaay back from the keyboard, probably three times the distance it would be if the music was on a music stand for an acoustic piano. That made it very challenging, to say the least! But we gave our best. In Reste Con Me, the piano starts and the cello comes in after the first 8 measures. The first time we played together, and he started his part, it just took my breath away. I don't know how else to put it. After that, we practiced for about an hour, trying to get our timing together and working on some kinks. It was sooo much fun!

Then he and his wife came to our house last weekend, and I accompanied him on my new piano! This time I was on my own piano (without the sheet music being a mile away!) and he was sitting much closer to me. And of course it was an acoustic piano instead of an ancient digital. And, even better, we had both practiced more and knew how to play together better. We played over and over over for about an hour. It was the most amazing thing I think I've ever done musically. 3hearts

It sounded wonderful! And because I was more confident with my part, I could really listen to him and enjoy the music that we were making together. After that, he played some Bach for us, and I stumbled through Nefeli whome

I have struggled with some degree of performance anxiety for most of my years playing piano. I have figured out how to prevent it from ruining my enjoyment of playing for others, but it does still sometimes get in the way of my ability to play well (especially if I haven't been practicing-for-performance). But when I played with him, it was so easy to just focus on the music and concentrate completely on that. And no shaky hands! (Of course,the audience was only our two spouses...)

Anyway, that was last weekend, and we're hoping to get together at the beginning of June to do DNA (also from Einaudi's cello collection) and of course Reste Con Me again. But, the bad news is, he's moving! frown so that will probably be our last time playing together, because he's moving halfway across the country.

But now that I know what it's like to play with a cellist, and I know that I can do it, I think I will try to find someone else to play with in the future. Maybe I can get a few string players to be friends with me -- I really want to do the Earth Prelude with strings!

Sorry this got kind of long. Here's the tl;dr version: every Einaudi fan should have a cello friend! grin

What a great update and wonderful story!! heart It's so good to have you back on the forum, Shiro. smile Maybe at your next practice you can record your efforts... I don't think we've had a real piano/cello Einaudi duet in the recital so far, and that would be a genuine treat. thumb

I'd love to record us... I still have the old Zoom (H2?). I wonder want a good placement would be, closer to the cello?

Yikes, you know that would mean I'd have to confess that I have invisible Internet friends! whome

Welcome back ShiroKuro!!!!
I know exactly what you are saying: back in 2013 I had the opportunity to meet and play with a cello player and that's a really nice experience. Einaudi music and a cello it's another dimension.

Nice to know that you'll do some records. Can't wait thumb

This thread needs updating with two very important pieces of news:

First, if you didn't see this on the Einaudi official facebook page or Einaudi forum facebook page, you don't want to miss out on yesterday's exciting release of a video showing a new piece, "Elegy for the Arctic," that he composed in partnership with Greenpeace... and performed floating on a platform in the Arctic Sea, surrounded by collapsing glaciers. Truly stunning.

Second exciting piece of news: At long last, Einaudi has set some dates in the U.S. for his Elements tour!! yippie

He'll be playing at San Francisco on October 4th, UC Davis on October 6th, UCLA on October 8th, NYU on October 18th, George Washington U. in DC on October 20th, and the previously announced Birchmere, VA date at the weird venue on October 21st. He also added a few more Canadian dates, including a second show in Toronto.

I'm not sure if tickets for any of these events are for sale yet (the UCLA and UC Davis ones are open only for series subscriptions at this point; individual concerts don't go up for sale until later in the summer). But I thought I'd give y'all a heads up in case you want to start making vacation plans. smile

I have tickets already for one of the Toronto shows, but I'm seriously considering making a trip out to LA to visit my sister, whom I haven't seen in years, and just happen to time it coincidentally for the UCLA show. whome

Also there are 2 particular chords in the prior section that I simply can't play all together. (B,F#,D) and (G,D,B). My teacher suggested I roll them, but I don't like how that sounds. I've been playing with bringing the top note down a third (B,F#,B) and (G,D,G) instead for now. I might try dropping the top note all together, or bringing it down an octave and see how that sounds. Just wondering what others might think.


I also have trouble reaching these 10ths and end up picking up the top note of the 10th in the *right* hand. You'll notice the right hand doesn't have a note on most (if not all) of those measures that start with those D and G major 10ths.

Wow, he sure one-upped the Piano Guys when it comes to doing piano performance videos in unusual locations. Floating on a platform in the Arctic as glaciers fall into the sea all around? Seems rather dangerous to me (even if he had a life jacket hidden underneath his overcoat).

Colin, are you talking about I Giorni? Or was this post meant for a different thread? smile

If you are talking about I Giorni...

There are several LH chords in that piece that I don't play as written, but I'd have to be in front of a piano, or my marked-up score, to tell you how I play them.

Although, now that I think of it, and if I'm remembering correctly, I play B, F#,D as B, D, F#, B, and the other one as G, B, D, G... I think...

ETA: adding the octave on top fleshes out the sound more than just moving the top note down, so you don't miss having the top note (D or B) as written. If you see what I mean.

Yes, this was a reply to an earlier post about I Giorni. I quoted the text from the earlier posting but didn't grab the name of the person who posted it.

Colin, I checked my score for I Giorni, and that is indeed how I play those LH chords. I move the top note down so I can reach it. Then I add the octave of whatever the lowest bass note it. I find that sounds better than just moving the top not down, and for this piece I prefer it to rolling.

I suppose playing that top note with the RH might be good, but there are enough spots where that won't work, like 160, and I'd rather play them all the same way each time that chord comes up. That's just my approach though.

Maybe the originally poster will see this and maybe share how s/he is playing it now.

Well, here's one version of the lyrics translated into English (and the original is Italian).

I've wondered how much input Einaudi had on those lyrics. The vocal version of Nuvole Bianche is a track on the Taranta album, by the way, Shiro--another reason to buy it. (Choros is the first reason to buy it. One of his best intense/powerful pieces.)

Katherine Jenkins has also done a vocal version of I Giorni. Not sure what I make of it--the lyrics, in particular, don't seem to bear relevance to Einaudi's original explanation of the background of the piece.

Thanks for psoting that, I hadn't heard it before but it was very interesting.

For some reason, I didn't like the I Giorni vocal version, neither the vocalist nor the lyrics. Sorry! The whole thing feels incredibly over-produced, which comes off feeling plastic to me. And I may be reacting even more strongly because I Giorni was the first Einaudi piece I learned and I keep it in my repertoire, so I have an idea of how I think it should sound. Which isn't to say I don't like arrangements, there are a few versions with piano and stings that I've heard on YouTube that I like.

On the other hand, I love the Nuvole Bianche vocal version, which I have now listened to probably 20 times in less than 24 hours! I didn't carefully read the English translation of the lyrics, though I did sort of run my eyes over them. But I love hearing the Italian lyrics, and looking at the lyric sheet (and fooling myself into thinking that I understand them from my long-forgotten studies of French and Spanish!)

Some how the singer's voice, alone with the piano, just fits perfectly for me and matches what I feel is the essence of the piece. Nuvole Bianche is also in my rep and I've fooled myself into thinking I know how to play. wink In any case, I think I have become obsessed with this video! whome

You're right, I should buy it. Is it the same vocalist?

It's funny, I have purchased waaay more Einaudi score collections than I have Einaudi CDs or music files. Isn't that weird! Well' not really, if I want to hear a piece played, I can just come to this thread and listen to all of you! smile

Oh wow. I just listened to Choros.

It's like a raging, delicious fever.... The antidote to which is The Earth Prelude.

Very intense! I like it a lot! It's this one, right?

Yes, that's it. It's my favorite on the Taranta album. Taranta is world music... the Nuvole Bianche song and Choros are probably the two least typical cuts from it. So you may not like the rest of the album as much. I enjoy it and listen to it a lot, but I have to be in a special kind of mood to hear it. It's definitely not your typical Einaudi. laugh I think the whole thing is on YouTube, so you should probably listen to it there before investing.

Yeah, I see what you mean about the over-produced feel to the Katherine Jenkins version of I Giorni. A little too syrupy for my taste.

Indeed! I really enjoyed Choros, but I also felt it wouldn't be something I'd listen to everyday. Too intense. But also very compelling.

yeah that's good advice! Especially because I'm kind of finicky. laugh Although I've evolved somewhat from the days when I didn't want to listen to anything other than solo piano whome

Ahahah! I have to share this.

I was just talking on the phone with my mother. I've gotten her interested in Einaudi and she likes a lot of his piano pieces. (she also speaks French and Spanish and has studied Italian before).

So I told her she had to listen to the vocal version of Nuvole Bianche, and I told her that the lyrics were in Italian. So while we were on the phone she apparently was googling and all of a sudden she starts reading out loud to me. I said "Stop! stop! what are you doing?!" She says, "I'm reading you the lyrics in English" to which I replied "no! don't do that! I don't want to know! That might ruin it for me!"

This after I posted a link above to translated version of the lyrics! I promise, I won't read them! whome
