Thanks for the suggestion. But regarding complexity of that piano piece, you don't expect the music of a game to be too complex. Still strong in emotions despite the simplicity. Make me think of "Lettre à élise" by Beethoven.

 

What about other instrument than piano ? Hilary Stagg , Hiromitsu Agatsuma ,  Dante Bucci ....
Piano, is just too much .... mainstream.

For other instruments:

 

With New Age harp music, I prefer John Doan over Hilary Stagg (not really comparable though as they have different styles, JD leans more towards Celtic). It is just my personal preferences.

 

With guitar music, I prefer Classical guitar (Julian Bream, John Williams, Christopher Parkening) over New Age works. Again, just my personal preferences.

I like her music. I have not heard of her before. Thank you!

Not sure I would consider him 'New Age' but Olafur Arnalds definitely deserves to be mentioned in this thread.  If you like Dustin O'Halloran then check out Arnalds.

^ Interesting work from a new artist. Piano/instrumental works with ambient/electronic beats. 

 

Thank you Mingus Ah Um. Cheers on your first post! Welcome to Headfi.

Michael Whalen seems the last artist I  can suggest. Very Ambient.

Thanks zzffnn.  Been lurking here for years but haven't taken the time to post anything until today.  

 

Two other artists worth mentioning are Max Richter & Peter Broderick.  Both would be considered more along the ambient piano lines but they do tend to get grouped into classical piano quite a bit.  Either way both are very relaxing to listen to and sound very amazing and intimate on a nice pair of cans. 

 

Peter Broderick - Float

Max Richter - The Blue Notebooks

Phantasys by Danny Wright is another excellent album. If you like albums from David Lanz, Jim Brickman or Kevin Kern, you may like this one as well.

 

700

Well, since you are still searching:

 

Wim Mertens

Rene Aubry

 

These are not 100% piano, but it would be a pity to not know them.

 

And during this period, the album "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by Vince Guaraldi Trio has lot of success ,

sorry if it's more jazzy than new age.

^ Thanks!  My search never ends.  I like Rene Aubry's Plaisirs d'Amour and Playtime, although they are not really piano albums.

Nice thread. I'd add Peter Kater to the list. I especially enjoy his Native American-themed albums with R. Carlos Nakai (Honorable Sky and Through Windows & Walls come to mind), and his solo works show his diversity beyond Native motifs.

Well, when I  think about it,

they are few titles from Yann Tiersen , on "Le fabuleux destin d'amélie poulain" soundtrack,

that are worth a listen:

 

Comptine d'un Autre Ete

Sur le fil

 

The whole soundtrack is not just piano, but I  could not imagine missing these.

^ Thanks Olias of Sunhillow. I like Peter Kater's Piano album (which is one of his very few solo albums).

I also like this album (Angel Above My Piano) by Fiona Joy Hawkins, which was recommended to me by a kind fellow Headfi'er.
