I was browsing the Naxos streaming site yesterday (a great resource, which you can often get free access to, as I do, through your public library membership) and came across this CD

http://www.quartzmusic.com/cddetail.php?cat_number=QTZ2064

It's a 2-CD set of pieces by Einaudi played by pianist Jeremy Limb (and others, for the 'cello parts on titles from 'Una Mattina' and so on). It's rather good, and at £4.99 for the download, it's pretty good value. I haven't come across any commercial recordings by other pianists of Einaudi's music before, although I have heard many of similar composers like Philip Glass (which I almost always prefer to Glass himself playing).

I had a browse of the Quartz site and see that they also have an album of Michael Nyman's piano music, played by Ksenia Bashmet.

http://www.quartzmusic.com/cddetail.php?cat_number=QTZ2069

I listened to this on Naxos and it is also excellent. I prefer many of the performances to Nyman himself playing on his 'Piano Sings' CD.

It's interesting that the Amazon (UK) reviews of the Einaudi/Limb CD seem to be quite polarized - some people giving it very negative reviews because it isn't Einaudi, and they feel it's some sort of con-trick, with others recognizing that Einaudi is a composer and that anyone is free to interpret his pieces. I guess this highlights Einaudi's ambiguous status somewhere between classical composer and superstar recording artist.

I didn't knew Jeremy Limb so I listened all the tracks. I paid special attention to "Monday" and "Dolce Droga" which are pieces that I've been playing since a while

As a listener I understand those negative comments you refer in Amazon. I think Jeremy is a little "heavy" on his interpretation and sometimes he can't play with the well known "Einaudi-flow". Do you understand what I mean?

But, who I am to criticize?

Thanks for sharing.

I do see what you mean, although I quite like many of his interpretations and it is interesting to hear a different approach.

I decided to look on Naxos for any other Einaudi interpretations, and found this album

http://cantaloupemusic.com/album.php?catno=030

There is one piece on here ("The Apple Tree") written by Einuadi for a small ensemble of piano, wind and strings. If you can find a way to listen to this, do. If you didn't know it was written by Einaudi you would never guess it. It has a much denser texture, more complex and angular than you would ever expect from him.

Thanks for posting these. I'm looking forward to the sheet music being published - "Corale" in particular sounds like a piece I would love to learn.

Normally books are published with the pieces of the albums of Ludovico. Let's hope this time they do the same thumb

Ok, I recorded the pieces that Ludo played at home. I had no time to hear them all so I do not know if they are all OK, but I decided to share them with you.

Enjoy!

I was tied up at a tournament with my daughter all day yesterday, but I'm listening to the home concert right now, along with having a spirited chat with Euan as to whether "In a Time Lapse" might be Einaudi's best album to date. The music is incredible. "Waterways" blew me away with all those super deep bass notes. "Two Trees" was lovely. And I'm only halfway through the concert...

Euan pointed out that the iTunes release of the album has five bonus tracks... so even though I pre-ordered the CD, I'm going to get the iTunes version tomorrow.

Can someone put names to the track numbers downloaded by Carlo? I will be able to I expect once I have the album.

BTW I often prefer just the piano music without the strings.

There's a gap between my track list numbers and the "real" pieces. I need to split track #5, track #10 and track #11. I'll do it later... sorry about that.

Track#1 Walk
Track#2 Discovery At Night
Track#3 Two Trees
Track#4 Life
Track#5 Brothers (04:03) + Orbit (03:22)
Track#6 Corale Solo
Track#7 Waterways
Track#8 Ronald's Dream
Track#9 Bever
Track#10 Newton´s Cradle (05:02) + Time Lapse (05:33)
Track#11 ?? (02:11) + Experience (04:45) + Underwood (03:40)+ Burning

Thanks Carlos. I had spotted the join between Newton's Cradle and Time Lapse in track 10, but not the others.

Agree with Monica, Waterways and Two Trees are very good. In fact there is only one I don't like, Newton's Cradle ( maybe it will grow on me), a couple I'm neutral about at the moment, but the majority are a delight.

I was less than wild about Newton's Cradle, too, but the album version is much better, because Einaudi adds some wild strings that gives it a lot of energy. "Experience" is stunning, too.

Thanks so much, Carlos, for all that work. It will help to have the solo piano versions to listen to when he releases the sheet music. thumb

Look at all those sold out dates! wow

I am nervously waiting for more U.S. dates to be added. The closest (so far) for me would be Chicago, but that falls smack dab in the middle of finals week for my kids. What kind of mother abandons her kids during finals week to go to a concert?!? (Maybe this one, but I'm hoping another city gets added that would work better for me...)
