Good find Mark, this is from I Giorni. I wonder how we all missed it, it's a nice sounding piece, very relaxing.

I Due Fiumi

I'm surprised you all haven't played this one yet. This is one I can "almost" play. A couple of spots can still trip me up, but this is one of the few I've been able to get all the way through!!

So.....this tells you this piece is easy and you all can probably learn it in less than a day!!

I almost submitted this as my recital piece!


When I reach the place I'm going, I will surely know my way.

This afternoon I was listening to that video over and over again when I had the blinding realization that I am not paid during the summer (I'm on a 9-month contract) and therefore I did not have to be at work.

So I packed up, went home, and started I Due Fiumi. It is surprisingly easy yet breathtakingly beautiful. I am hooked. heart

p.s. does anybody know the translation of the title?

I think I Due Fiumi translates to "The two Rivers"

This is a pretty piece and not too difficult to learn.

Well, the kids just went to bed so I reluctantly had to stop working on I Due Fiumi. frown I have pretty much all the notes down, but in looking at the score it's clear there's a lot of subtle dynamics and emotionality going on, so it will take a while to get it sounding its best.

p.s. to mark: yeah, it's still spring, but final grades were turned in last week so I am F-R-E-E until mid-August. smokin

Well Monica, congrats on all your free time. I expect many more LE songs posted. And as for the kids sleeping, you need to get a nice digital piano with head phones... laugh

I don't think I have ever gotten into a piece as much as I did I Due Fiumi. heart Last night I waited until 11:30 when I was sure the kids were sound asleep and then played it quietly until 12:30. Then I put a few more hours in it today.

Here is the end result:

"I Due Fiumi"

It's not polished; there's a couple of hesitations, one right at the beginning of the main melody, drat it. mad I'll probably try to re-record a better take for my annual CD. But this is probably the shortest time it's ever taken me to learn a piece semi-decently, so I was too excited to wait and try for another one.

Man this is a heart-breakingly beautiful piece.

Wow...you did this amazingly fast. But then again even I almost did page 1 in a day... laugh

You are very close to nailing it. I really liked it. One thing I liked from the you-tube piece was when the right hand was hitting the notes hard in that one area. This piece just has a sweet spot that I love...

I envy you for the ability to lean his pieces so fast and well...

Thanks, Mark, but this one is definitely an exception. You should hear (or, rather, you shouldn't hear) my rendition of Le Onde, on which I have been working for over a year. cursing

p.s. You copied my post before I could sneak in and correct my mistaken spelling of the title. Oops.

I told you all you could probably learn this in one day if I could play it and Monica went and did it!!

I won't tell you how long it took me.....sigh

Nice job Monica, I definitely won't be posting a recording of this piece now as I really don't need the public humiliation!!

Hopefully one day I "will" be able to play the piano....if not, I can always listen to y'all! laugh

And I'm starting to believe what Mr. Hunky once said about playing LE's music. That just by playing or trying to play in my case, it makes you a better piano player in general. I've noticed some subtle changes in my abilities...

Now I feel bad, rocky, because I *definitely* want to hear your version! (a) because it's a beautiful piece, (b) because I learn by hearing others' interpretations of pieces and seeing how they do things differently, and (c) if I can post the same pieces as Kawaigirl and live through it, you can post the same pieces as me. laugh

LOL Monica....don't feel bad!!!! I don't!!!

I think you played that very well!!! Wish I could learn things as quickly!!!

I tried recording it today (bunches of times!!) and just couldn't get through it ...ugh!!!

I have saved everyone's recordings of Einaudi's pieces and enjoy everyone of them.

When I grow up I wanna be like y'all laugh

Rocky, I hope we all can hear your version of I Due Fiumi.

For me, being able to listen to the different interpretation of the piece by all levels is a learning experience.

Well played, Monica, I love that refrain 40 seconds in. This piece definitely appeals to me, it's so peaceful and restful, quite lovely. A few very slight hesitations but your tempo and dynamics sound just about perfect.

A question for Monica or Rocky, what fingering do you use when you play that spread out 4 note G chord (at measures 7 & 8) of fiumi?

I can do 5,3,2,1 all in the left hand but it's a stretch.

I'm sure I probaby don't do it technically correct, but I play it like this:

5,2,1,2,1,2,5,2,1,2,1,5

(Scared to see how differently Monica might be playing it!!! )

laugh

P.S. It would be helpful if they had included some suggested fingerings!

Thanks rocky, that was the other alternative (or cheating by playing the top note with my right hand) hehe, I was hoping I didn't have to do that walk (especially going backwards).

I think Einaudi has big hands, the bastard! laugh

Thanks kawaigirl! I usually just play what feels comfortable...unless an area is giving me problems and then I will look to the suggested fingerings........how I wish this book had some!! laugh

That's how I play it, too, Rocky. smile

What about the rolled chord at the very last measure? I can't play it with one hand so I do the bottom two notes with my left hand and top two notes with my right.

I managed to play it all the way though tonight...you guys are right, it does seem to be very intuitive. Very pretty as well, especially the top of that middle section, I keep wanting to go back just to play that part. smile

Lol, can't seem to sleep tonight, every few minutes I have to get up and play that section again (from every piece of his I learn something new, not only is his music wonderful but he's a very fine teacher as well.)
