    But Holst's the Planets are amazing!! Jupiter and Mars are my favourites :o: but listening the whole thing can be really inspiring.....

    Must be some piece of music :p: ....
    Don't have to tell me that. I went to one of the BBC proms in London just to hear the Planets Suite live. It was incredible. I think Einaudi was better as a live show, but you can't really beat a full orchestra. Einaudi was more intimate.

    The keyword in a previous post is relative. I thought of classical given the initial post.
    ah makes sense :yep:

    I saw that on tv...it was amazing, wish I'd been there :p: lucky Coo...I remember you mentioning Einaudi before and I wasn't familiar with his works...just looked some up (although of course a few seconds on the internet can never get anywhere near to the intimacy and quality of a live performance) and it's very beautiful...but the the planet's will always be my favourites I think...there's something really special about them Coo has an awesome taste in music :yes:

    I do indeed. Hmm... If you like that kind of music, I recommend Smetana's 'Ma Vlast' series, particularly Vltalva.

    It's okay. I prefer Holst if truth be told. :tongue:

    -The main theme (track 1) from the album Frontier
    -Road to the Faire, The Festival and Dragon's Breath from Celtic Book of Days
    -the Overture from In The Wake Of The Wind

    It was £25, at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham. He played pieces from his Nightbook album, about 8 tracks in total, plus a couple of encore tracks. One of the pieces was the piano on it's own, the others were accompanied by two violinists (one who also played guitar on some tracks and the other who did percussion and was AMAZING with a tambourine), a viola player, a cellist and an electronic musician too. It was about 2 and a half hours in total. He looked very amazing, and he wore all black :ninja:

    It was INCREDIBLE. It was so dynamic and all the musicians were fab, not just him. At the beginning, the electronics musician was playing something very quiet and ethereal, and there was very little lighting, and there was smoke just kind of floating above the stage, though only a subtle amount, not loads, and the two violinists walked up between the aisles and climbed the stage, all very slowly, while playing, and the cellist and viola player came out from the wings while playing, and they all sat and carried on playing, and then you were so focused on them you didn't even see Einaudi come onstage and sit at the piano until you heard him play. And then... ahhh. It was the best night I've ever had. Seriously.
