The Top Ten

1 Le Onde

Probably the best piano composition I have ever heard, a truly amazing piece of work

I'm just in love with Le Onde.. I like it that much that I listen to it every day... - FinnBlom

It unravels the mind in the most gentle way, and always leaves me raw with emotions afterwards. I cry every time because of the sheer beauty of this piece.

You can play it however you want

2 I giorni

Simply beautiful, and playable even for someone who's a little out of practice

I am 13. I played this is a music festival recently and received comments like, "You could hear a pin drop," and "It gave me goosebumps." I was given the award for most promising participant under the age of 14. The adjudicator said he had never heard it played so well and also admitted that he didn't really like Einaudi. This piece is truly beautiful.

My favorite. I played it on the piano for my Dad while he was in hospice, and I would like to think it gave him some peace.

Another beautiful track of his. Once you start the track picks you up and keeps your interest for the duration. - Finch

Put it simply, elegance + epic music

5 Divenire

The best

I hear it every day. Not just this song but the whole album having same name 'Divenire'. But one time when I was missing someone I loved badly, I played this and it released the floodgates of tears, like something wanted to burst out since so long, and let me forgive myself.

I play this all the time and what a beautiful piece. I will never be bored of this

Why is Divenire not in the top FIVE? This is boggling and really, quite surprising.

This one is harp instead of piano but just as beautiful. - Finch

9 Experience

5 minutes of pure bliss

As an aspiring writer, for any scene of raw emotion or heartfelt moments, this is the song to listen to. Just listen. And feel. The number of emotions and thoughts this song brings is phenomenal, and the feeling behind it is so transferable.

I just sat down and cried because the song was so beautiful. This piece will always be dear to my heart!

Just awesome inspiring song.

12 Primavera

Sweeps you up in an undulating waves of music. Mesmerising and beautiful... I heard this, and just wanted to hear more and more from this composer

Very beautiful song with contrast between the loud and the quiet.

This is the most wonderful music I have heard in my life. I taught my self this piece in 2 or 3 weeks and I think I made the good decision by learning this piece because It's THE BEST.

It's one of the most beautifully composed pieces of orchestral ballads that I've ever heard.

Love this piece, from a great film

Takes you off ground to breathtaking heights, free and though missing the ground with a profound melacholy mixed with a promise of joy. For me No. 1

17 Oltremare

This was the first song I ever listened to by him. Brings back so many memories.

'experience' is my favorite track but this is a very close second, a perfect masterpiece that should easily be top 5.

An emotional journey.

19 Run

Love the momentum and energy that builds up to the masterful crescendo.

So amazing. It reminds me of a man running from something, hiding then in the end getting caught and being dragged back to where he began

Just a beautiful piece, with an amazing pace. Definitely should be in the top ten.

UListen to Sample
20 Ancora

Should be higher

I'm honestly surprised this isn't top ten because personally this song is my most solidly consistent favorite song if his. This song has it's hooks deep within my psyche. I find myself out of nowhere humming the opening bars. Ludivico's masterful manipulation of crescendo and dimuendo carry me away in emotion every time and provide an addictive catharsis that I return to time and again.

Beautiful, inspiring. I learnt it and many people have said it’s beautiful. A real reflecting song

26 Song for Gavin

The only song that describes all of my emotions, but at the same time. What a wonderful piece of work. It could be the soundtrack of anyone's life.

Hauntingly beautiful. The most perfect mix of melancholy, sounds to describe those feelings that you cannot express in words.

Simplicity at is most intense, achingly beautiful.

32 I Due Fiumi

As I sit trying to explain why I love this song, there are literally no words to describe how it makes me feel. Hope, sadness, excitement, heartbreak. It is so beautiful, and I wonder how it couldn't possibly be in the top 10! It has a unique charm to it that - while Einaudi's songs are all absolute masterpieces - I feel is exclusively present in this song. Please, give this one a chance, you won't regret it!

41 Two Trees

I fully believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however I cannot believe that out of 33 of Einaudi's songs, this hasn't been mentioned yet. Absolutely beautiful piece, with all of life's joy, beauty and sadness within only six minutes. Just phenomenal...

UListen to Sample
42 Burning

This one is definitely Einaudi's best piece. It isn't that well known, but it's part of his album "In A Time Lapse". For me, 'Burning' is an unrivalled masterpiece and one of my favourites ever. Whenever I feel a bit depressed or whenever the doubt of whether I should keep on living weighs heavy on my mind, this piece is the only thing that can direct my mind to the magic of being alive, and to the miracle of being a part of such a boundless, beautiful universe.
