In the video below my son plays, elegant therapeutic music in the famous "minimalist style" of the non-conformist 56 year old , Italian composer and pianist Einaudi.
Einaudi is a genius and I call him the KING of piano.
But hardly anybody knows him .
We like to boost pretenders like Lady Gaga , over Abba --right?
His transcendent style is TRANQUIL and meditative and can be used to back up information from your conscious to the sub conscious ( LH lobe to RH lobe-- for righthanders ) the day you dont get REM sleep.
MUSIC FOR THE SOUL FROM THE SOUL.
I remember sending my son to play piano at the age of 5.
Today he is 24, and works as a computer engineer .
My wife was to learn guitar and mouth organ , and my son would learn piano from a local music teacher.
My wife learnt one full Hindi song, the first day.
My son was to learn "happy birthday " --
-- but when I told him to play he could do only 3 tones-
HA -PPY- BHE-
-- and because I ridiculed him , he lost interest quickly.
-- and I told my wife " He does NOT have the musical gene in him"
See how times change!
Here is the maestro LIVE at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 2nd March 2010.
