You need to look on the playlist. RP regularly throws Beethoven, Satie, Vivaldi, Mozart and other 'classic' classical composers into the mix, and extremely welcome they are to listeners going by the ratings. They've not gone quite as far as Birtwhistle and Stockhausen, for which the universe be praised, but it's fair to say that the classical mix is as eclectic as the 'modern' one.


Eclectic yes, only sometimes I wish it was a bit more daring. And if Stockhausen might test the patience of even the most open minded listeners, how about Can, at least?

Well said fred. I concur.  
The loud string passage reminds me of those Bose Wave commercials that used to play in the 1990s.  They'd put on a segment that sounds almost exactly like this.
Love this guy!
Feels like I remember this song from somewhere
OUTFRIGGENSTANDING!

Awesome, so love this track!
This song evokes an amazing love story in my mind, ; one with many 'seasons' 
Superb.

The PSD button brought me here also. Very glad it did.{#Music} 
IMPRESIONANTE
Thanks for playing. Haven't heard it in awhile. Brilliant music.
Primavera. Spring. Here it is, with a full month of winter left in NYC, and it's 56 and sunny and the snow piles are gone and some spring birds are chirping. That's a good deal, except when it's weirdly, freakishly, environmentally premature.  
But the music is nice.

I love this song...I would like for it to go on a very long time.
I just figured out why I like this so much. It sounds like the score to a great show ... if I could only remember the name. LOL. something "Hotel", set in Spain, in Spanish,
Musical wallpaper and plain gray at that.

What I'm seeing here is the opposition of Classical vs. Popular. Classical this is not.
This music is meant to be evocative, not provocative. Unless its in an amorous way.
Damn I'm sick of this song.

It was this and several other pieces from Satie etc. that launched my fascination with minimalism and launched two piano "careers". My older son is now a very decent player and I have taken a needed sabbatical from my very rudimentary playing but will return soon. Love this piece...

Perhaps you could. Most of the recording sounds like it has been carefully polished and quantized in Cubase. Sounds a bit like false dexterity to me.
For all the grandiose string flourishes, a forgettable movie soundtrack.

I brought a couple of friends to his performance a few years ago. They would have rather stuck needles in their eyes and claimed that all his music sounded the same. Oh well, I enjoyed it! :-)

Well, on RP I've heard Beethoven's 5th Symphony (1st movement) and at least one season from Vivaldi's Four Season, not to mention Mozart and Chopin, none of which could be called bland. Keep listening and you'll hear them.

I completely agree

 
I completely disagree ...

First the song is not bland, its fairly seasoned and spiced.

Second, there are plenty of other non-classical pieces on the station ... but you just aren't hearing them at the time because their rotation isn't in line with your listening pattern.  So if you listen more :) you'll hear the wider diversity when it comes.

Third, you haters be hatin' :-P :)

Beautiful. I'm always amazed how you guys manage to transition seamlessly through such a wide, wide variety of music. I've discovered so much great new stuff that way, stuff that I would otherwise never have considered, that the music publishers ought to be paying you, and pay you a fortune for the brilliant exposure you're giving all those artists!
wonderful...
use to like it but once a month would work better than once a day. 
have any other of his work?
This composition not only covers Primavera, but all the rest of the seasons. Superb!
Way to go Bill. YOUR Choices are sublime{#Dance}, and the only thing to say is "more power to your elbow". {#Bananapiano} I can only sing your praises to ALL my friends, students and anyone else who will listen to me banging on about HOW great RP is {#Bananasplit}THANKS KCR Mountain River
This is the first time I've even heard of Einaudi, let alone listened to his music. Bloody fantastic! 
Sublime
Quite perfect song to say goodbye to one Italian...
OK Bill,

Great tune but let's find something else by Mr. Einaudi.  This is close to overplayed.

Indeed.  I can't go higher than a 7 for this, but it is a very nice interlude.

There are few songs played by RP that I feel compelled to turn off. This is one. Putrid, sugary, pseudo-music. Really nauseating stuff.

PRETTY sure none of the strings on this are real -  not that that is necessarily a bad thing...but after a while of the exact same passages played SO squeaky clean, it does tend to gravitate towards autotune syndrome. And think what you will about THAT whole business.
