    I think it's mainly to do with the musical side of his pieces, rather than the technique itself.

    For example, The Swan by Saint-Saens (famous cello piece) is actually pretty easy and involves little technique and only a bit of work to do with getting the highest notes in tune; but saying that, it requires a real understanding of the style and you need to immerse yourself into the music, so it wouldn't be lower than about grade six.

    Personally, I'm not a great fan of Einauldi, but I'd say there's more to his pieces than repeated arpeggiated phrases, so although I Giorni might only be about grade 3 technically, to understand the style and the message of the music requires a lot more work, so I'd say to give it justice, you'd have to be about grade 5/6.

    Grade 3 to 4, it's not very complex, try playing this the whole way through without failing, then you will know grade 5 and 6... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6Ko1gI9LcA

    This is hardly grade 5 or 6 but rather more diploma standard. The notes are not easy to learn and requires great skill to interpret successfully.

    Also OP, I think Einaudi's music is Grade 6 standard depending on the piece.

    I played I Giorni recently and I am between grades 5 and 6. I think a lot of Einaudi is not that you can play the notes, but how sensitively etc you play it.
