Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen, Yiruma

Modern classical composers such as Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen and Yiruma have been quite popular in the recent years. I believe Ludovico Einaudi first featured one of his tracks in the film This is England with Nubole Bianche. Then I Giorni being featured by Greg James in BBC radio 1 gave this italian composer evem a bigger playform. I was aware of Yann Tiersen while living in France but then his compositions such as Comptine D’un Autre ete and Vase d’amelie as pieces that many students in people in general enjoy listening to. Let’s not forget Yiruma with River Flows in You has been in the top 10 of the modern classical repertoire although many critics may say that this music is simple or lacks the wow composition factor, I must say that even though this is not Satie or Chopin – It makes people feel something special and in my opinion that’s what this is all about, making people feel something – an emotion? remember something they were doing when they heard the piece or maybe just because you like the sound of it. I have taught this pieces to many of students in the last 10 years and the satisfaction they feel when the piece of finish is wonderful.

Myself as a music composer I enjoy composing modern classical piano so here is my contribution if you would like to add this to your repertoire. Feel free to ask for the sheet music.
