Islands contains the best of composer Ludovico Einaudi's works, such as I Giorni, Nuvole Bianche and Primavera, compiled for the first time into a single collection for solo Piano. Also included here are two brand new tracks, The Earth Prelude and High Heels, as well as two remixed versions of Lady Labyrinth and Eros.

Einaudi is renowned for bringing classical music back into the mainstream, with his compositions for piano and other instruments with piano accompaniment, including some electronic influences in his later work. Albums like Una Mattina, Divenire and In A Time Lapse have become hugely popular, and this collection features the cream of these stunningly atmospheric works arranged for solo Piano. These pieces would suit a player who has progressed beyond the beginner stages, but you needn't be a pro to master Einaudi, whose middle name is simplicity.

Einaudi has garnered critical acclaim throughout the world for his emotionally arresting and powerful compositions that have been used in films like 'Doctor Zhivago' and Television shows like Ricky Gervais' 'Derek'. This is testament to his versatility as a composer, able to conjure a number of moods with his characteristic style of beautiful Piano composition.

This Essential Einaudi is the most accurate transcription of his incredible Piano compositions available. Check out the sample images to the left to see for yourself. Also, if you would like to hear/watch samples of Einaudi's brilliant work, just see the links below to sample audio and visual content.

Ampthill GB
This is quite different from the music I generally play, and I find it satisfying to tackle. it needs to be played at a good speed to make the most of the refrain that may not be obvious if played slowly.

Good quality manuscript.
As others have mentioned it would be better if it had a spiral binding so that the pages laid flat for ease of use.

Customer Rating Excellent! Great for background music and relaxing to play.

Customer Rating Great! The arrangements are very similar to the actual recordings which is good as some books aren't. I'm about to do grade 4 and it's not hard. A great buy and fantastic music!

Customer Rating Just what we wanted

Customer Rating Just right for competent but not Grade 8 pianists. The music itself is often repetitive, but can have a hypnotic effect. Well-produced book, except for the usual business of making it stay open.

Customer Rating Absolutely Amazing pieces. Lovely to play and relax to. A mix of challenging and easier pieces so is great for any non-beginner pianist. Great change from exam pieces and very uplifting when you feel down and need a boost. Would reccommend this book and any Einaudi piece to any pianist that ever comes up to me. absolutely brilliant! Cant get enough of it

Customer Rating Fantastic. just finished grade 2 and able to have a go at bits of this and loving it. Looking forward to learning more and more as I improve.

Customer Rating Disappointed that three pieces are repeated in this book from his edition "The Piano Collection Volume 1" but, despite this, as usual this is a good selection of music and a joy to play.
