    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.
    Primavera has a violin part
    They are technically very easy....emotionally extremely deep. Typicall anyone can learn the notes, but not so many people can experience it

    I just lose myself

    Feeling the love for Einaudi right now!

    I play I Giorni and Nuvole Bianche, I think next is Berlin and Monday. If it wasn't for the main theme of 'The Pianist' and 'The legend of 1900', I'm sure Einaudi would have got me anyway :yep:

    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.
    Woo just bought tickets to see him on Saturday, had no idea he was playing in Sheffield until I randomly checked his site this morning.

    His concert was amazing! He received a five minute standing ovation at the end, and it was so strange seeing him on stage. And listening to the pieces live really does make them come to life.

    I was hoping he'd play this piece:

    which he did, and I was ecstatic. When it ended, the guy behind me went "Wow!"

    Yeah it was really good, he got a standing ovation here as well and of course an encore

    The stage was set up really well, I'm guessing it was the same for you? There was a constant slight mist engulfing the orchestra so the spotlights really stood out, the way the spotlights only focused on the instruments playing was very cool.

    Yeah, I thought they did a brilliant job with the lights, and the way they shone in time to the music. I really need to get some violin sheet music for his songs now. I am so glad I went.

    Ah, this sounds amazing, wish I could've gone!
    'Passagio' - anyone? (Definitely my favourite)

    I didn't realise he wrote songs as well! I thought he just wrote instrumental pieces
    Andare is instrumental. Presumably they used the word song to mean track (as many people do).

    Going to see him in the Barbican on the 31st July! Can't wait! If your lucky, there may still be tickets for £35 on their website.

    Have got the chorus of high heels stuck in my head during revision. I'm not even mad.

    I wish I could go, but I don't live anywhere close. You will probably have a fantastic time though.
    He's also doing a tour of the UK in November, hopefully he'll come somewhere near me again.

    Another one of my favourites by him, Love is a Mystery:

    I'm not the greatest of fans (I'm somewhat of a classical music snob, I like proper accompaniment and development etc, not just the same primary chords repeated ) but I do find it useful to send me to sleep.
