    I've managed to buy tickets to his concert in April, and I am so excited. It's the first concert I've ever been to as well.

    I've noticed a couple of posts by users around this forum who say they listen to Einaudi's music while revising, so I'm hoping there are some fans lurking around. I can't stop listening to some of his songs from his latest album, Time Lapse:

    THAT SOUNDS INCREDIBLE CONGRATULATIONSSSS!
    I love his stuff bro, I'm all about Due Tremonti (sp?) and the obvious i giorni. Scratch that I pretty much love all of his stuff. I DIDN'T REALISE HOW POPULAR HE WAS?? I heard his Le Onde? I think I don't remember accurately but I heard it on the great British bake-off which is one of my favourite shows and I was squealing like a chubby piglet! CONGRATUFREAKINGLATIONS WOMAN! (If you're a woman, can't be bummed to go AAAAALL THE WAY BACK to your post to actually check) BAAIII

    His performance of Eros at the Royal Albert Hall was amazing.

    I'm not the sort of person who goes to concerts to listen to musicians live, I'd rather stay in my comfy room listening through my laptop. But I think Ludovico is an exception.

    What are your favourite pieces? I think songs like Divenire and Primavera are classics, but I've had his new album on repeat for a couple of days now, and still haven't gotten bored of it.

    I love Dietro Casa and I Giorni but I think Experience from the new album is lovely as well. I'm going to the Barbican to see him, will be a completely new experience for me, which is always nice
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Absolutely love his music, so a little jealous! I don't even really listen to that kind of music but his I find awesome.

    Where are you going for it? I've looked to see if he's playing in the UK this year but haven't found anything

    The BBC use him a lot which is where I first heard him, then whore'd out his youtube videos from there.

    The concert is in St David's Hall in Cardiff on the 28th of April. I just looked on his website when I found out he was releasing a new album, and managed to grab one of his last tickets.

    I really want to learn how to play the piano, just so I can play his pieces. A friend of mine said they're not too difficult to play. If only it were possible to play them on the violin.

    I've only seen a few pieces that my sister has been playing, but I've had a crack at them, and they're relatively simple (a lot of repetition and quite regularly structured). Presumably you can read music, so if you have access to a piano, definitely have a go. You can get the scores online, and you should be able to teach yourself some of them, with a little help. So yeah, give it a go, it's lovely music to play

    Some of his piece are possible on the violin as long as you have a piano accomp. Due tramonti was written for cello and passagio is another good one.

    I'm going to see him in st. davids hall too

    He did a live youtube streaming of his latest album several months ago as part of a pre-release, so you could do both!
    I'd definitely recommend watching it, was pretty amazing to watch him play in such a private setting

    I didn't realise he wrote songs as well! I thought he just wrote instrumental pieces

    Yeah, I remember watching that. It was lovely listening to him play. I also watched his full concert in the Royal Albert Hall on youtube, that was amazing.
