Heather | 8271 comments I'm going to add another one, because I feel like it.
And...any of you who want to introduce or share a musical artist with the group, please do!

Ludovico Maria Enrico Einaudi OMRI (Italian: [ludoˈviːko eiˈnaudi] born 23 November 1955 is an Italian pianist and composer. Trained at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan, Einaudi began his career as a classical composer, later incorporating other styles and genres such as pop, rock, folk, and world music.

Einaudi has composed the scores for a number of films and television productions, including This Is England, The Intouchables, I'm Still Here, the TV miniseries Doctor Zhivago, and Acquario (1996), for which he won the Grolla d'oro award. He has also released a number of solo albums for piano and other instruments, notably I Giorni in 2001, Nightbook in 2009, and In a Time Lapse in 2013. On 1 March 2019, Einaudi announced a seven-part project named Seven Days Walking, which is to be released over the course of seven months in 2019.

Dirk Van | 2692 comments Ah Einaudi!
One of my favorites too!
I 've seen him twice in concert, here in Antwerp. And the second time he was signing CD's so I had to opportunity to chat with him.
And I have a signed CD now!
In fact I have almost all his CD's (already 5 of the 7 days of walking)
And lot's of favorites (I just checked my library and over a dozen 5 star numbers.)
How about this one from an album of 2005:

Heather | 8271 comments That’s awesome, Dirk! Is he a pretty personable fellow?
I was thinking of you, actually, when I opened this thread because I knew you liked him. Thank you sharing some more songs!

Dirk Van | 2692 comments Well he was very charming and friendly, but if he wasn't he wouldn't be doing these singing sessions I think ;-)

It was in a small concert hall, 10 minutes walk from my door. It used to be a movie theater 50 years ago, then a concert hall for popmusic late 70's, but after a couple of years that stopped and it stood empty for 30 years until a neighborhood association, started renovation and now there are more than 100 concerts per year!



Had I already mentioned Einaudi in a post? I don't remember LOL: I'm getting old ;-)

That looks like a beautiful concert hall. Neat experience!
Only when I posted one of his songs to share in another thread, you commented on it and mentioned that you enjoyed his music.
