Didn't every young man dream of playing something like this on his grand piano in a Manhattan penthouse to his supermodel wife? Oh. Just me and Billy Joel. I'll just get my things and go.

Strange that everyone doesn't rate according to your taste.  One might think it's just you, if that were actually possible.

What is it about the sheer hatred Einaudi generates on this board? How can such simple music be so greatly offensive to RP listeners such that the red mist descends and bile pours from keyboards? Surely at worst it's 'elevator music'? I honestly want to know: what is it about Einaudi that gets on your tits so much?

oh I'd MUCH rather hear something, anything, by Phillip Glass
I liked this guy when I first heard him on RP, but now I find him treacly and melodramatic
like Yanni or John Tesh

The first piece by this artist I have actively disliked. Repetitive, no imagination or soul. And a bit pretentious. Was this CD filler?

I  have often realised here that "Tolerance" is a word most listeners here have never heard before nor understand the meaning.

As is often the case, those who "hate" do only hate, because secretly their guilty conscience is biting them.

So I presume most "Haters" here secretely love this music......{#Roflol}

I think a lot of people just find Ludovico's music to be too sprightly and and zippy.

I'm not one of the haters or the snobs here, but I gotta say, Einaudi sucks. Repetitive, derivative, unmusical. This stuff constitutes the only real clunkers I know of in RP's vast and varied library.

Okay, I take it back: I AM enough of a snob to say that this is not just a matter of taste; Einaudi is NOT in the same league as any of the fine composers some listeners have compared him to here, all of whom pushed the musical envelope in one way (or at one time) or another. Einaudi does not. The only thing he pushes is my last nerve.

If he's saying that it puts him to sleep, then it seems to fit the context pretty well.  If you're saying that it doesn't do so for you, then I agree.

I ranked it 8 in the past and now moved it to 9 as I love it more and more. I don't find it as repetitive as others do. I let it carry me and I love the place it is taking me to ! Even though it's only for a few minutes... 
I ranked this "8 - Most Excellent" in the past. But he is beginning to sound like Yanni...—>Ho Hum 3.

I like the guy, but he's definitely not "rock and roll" -- even when the genre is stretched as far as Bill can pull.  That's the only possibility I can imagine: it's not rock and roll, so many listeners have little (or no) patience with it.  "Get that shite off my speakers and put on some Clash, whydontcha!"

(And for the record, the first time I heard Mr. Einaudi -- here on RP -- I thought, "Somebody's re-done a Debussy piece?")

Low-cult fake classical music for the masses. One of the worst musician alive.

Great tune.. Bought at Amazon. Hope the whole album is as good!
The standard of the music played today Sunday 15-12-13 has been outstanding - I'm in England and so its evening now but I have been listening for last 8 hours and the standard of choice is wonderful - thank you so much

So far as “complexity” in music goes.  It is not an important aspect.  Some music has a lot of variation, and it is good.  Other music has very little variation, and is just as good.  I can name great works in both regards.  It’s a boring topic.

The song is beautiful. I have not a care in the world how simplistic it may or may not be.

This is a beautiful piece of music. Comparison with the greats is an unfair but inevitable fate for any contemporary composer. Can any classical music not be derivative?
at some point we should prol'y step back, take in the wider view of us all navel gazing with some of the critique. This ain't Debussy by a long shot. But as a mood maker, across the wider canvas that = RP, it adds.
Here in the US, before the 2012 London Olympic Games began, P&G (Proctor & Gamble) used portions of this tune in some TV ads.
The messages was something like "Thanks to the Mom's" and only flashed products pix up at the end before they put the company name up.

Amazing, eclectic and with emotion.
Heard his music on some P&G commercials associated with the 2012 Summer Olympic games in London. 
If some of the rest of you want to forget Einaudi that's your problem.  I won't be.  A true modern master.

Lord, it just goes on and on and on...  Enough.
Hope he does make a sound track to a movie... wait.. I'd better Google him... I've given this a 7 because its a bit simplistic. I'd love more sweeping orchestral background and space. I do arpeggios like that all the time. The theme is nice. By the end of the song, I felt I was in an elevator or Homesense.

  Interesting, your saying that. I'd initially rated this a 9 and have downgraded it over time to now a 7. In other words, its appeal after the initial "wow" for me hasn't held. Satie & especially Debussy I can hear a thousand times and never tire.

You're listening to Andare by Ludovico Einaudi on Radio Paradise.  Before that was Florence & The Machine, with "The Sun, The Moon".  Before that one, we had what's actually a new tune, it's by Florence & The Machine but it's a cover of Ludovico Einaudi.

Wow. This song represents the largest divergence between my rating and the average. I absolutely hate this stuff. Every bit of it. The first three notes of Three Blind Mice, in minor key, over and over and over again with some very simplistic embellishments. The apotheosis of teenage angst.

A musical virtuoso drifting through the pathways of his mind.  This is actually a creative tone poem reflecting a mood, an ambiance.  Nothing more, nothing less.  No need to read more into the piece.  Enjoy it for what it is.

The music major has a good ear and makes a good point. I must add that if the minor is not needed then stay with the major. Next time you see the music major ask him what key are most slot machines bells tuned to.
That was great.  A nice change from the previous 3 or 4 songs that had lacked much apart from musical apathy

That's a good distinction.  Frequently, the music - or art - that I find depressing is that which tries to convince you that everything's just fantastic (ie: "Don't Worry Be Happy").  But that's just me, I guess.


I must download this. Beautiful.
Off to Amazon. Again.


A nice track to listen to late at night.

Yearning/Longing set to music. I do so love this.
I adore this Einaudi album as it seems does every other person who overhears me playing it.  My neighbour downstairs popped a note through my door and i thought i had been too loud but she just wanted to know who it was.  Same at my work where the teacher in the next room over came into my room not to complain but rather to find out what i was playing.  So much music to thank Bill for and though i've said it before - thanks again for the intro to Einaudi.
I love it!{#Daisy}
nice break from the expected.
