Any other recommendation?

Just look at the artists here:

 

http://www.last.fm/tag/new%20age%20piano/artists?page=1

 

or here:

 

http://www.last.fm/tag/piano%20new%20age/artists

 

Or you could look at the top new age artists, tagged piano on last.fm, or reverse.

Any other specific recommendations? Thanks.
It does not have to be solo piano.

Well, I  like to listen some new age piano compilation, mixed with nature sound, called Romantic Of Nature.

It's not top performers, but  it's relaxing. There's one artist that stand out a bit more than others on the compilation , it's kenio fuke:

David arkenstone does also nature / piano mixing, in its serie called "natural wonders".

There's also dan's gibson,  with the popular album "forest piano".

Sorry, but I  just find it more relaxing than plain piano

Very nice. Thank you! Please recommend some more artists (I noticed that you are a Radio DJ and have a similar music preference as mine). Feel free to check out my artist list in my Headfi profile or post a message there. Cheers beerchug.gif

@ extrabgmehdi

Yiruma is of a similar style, but with less repetition and more complexity/melody.

I would definitely put her more in the New Age genre myself, but however you classify her, she is a tremendous talent (and puts on a great concert too).

Indeed! Have you been to her concert? IIRC she is in California. And cheers to your being here for 11 years!

No problem, and yes, there are similarities in our music taste :)
I already checked the artists from your profile before, thanks for the hint.

So, other piano recommendations that I didn't already find in your profile:  
Josh Kramer, Brian Crain, Ryan Cohen, Akira Kosemura and of course, I can't forget to recommend a fellow countryman, Arvo Pärt.

But yeah, the term "new age" is used very loosely with those artists.

As there are music similarities in our taste, I would also recommend to check out a page of mixes.
Some examples to start with that contain piano: http://www.mixcloud.com/potereinfinito/episode-12-something-has-changed-291010/

and http://www.mixcloud.com/potereinfinito/episode-16-aerial-141110/

Those artists and the whole profile there should keep you busy the whole year, heh.

Thanks quietstorm! I like your recommendations. 

 

It looks like Brian Crain is quite established and popular. Josh Kramer and Akira Kosemura seem to be young and promising musicians. Arvo Pärt is more of a modern classical composer (I think I heard him before but could not remember). 

 

Your ambient / minimalistic -sounding mixes are interesting to listen to.

That's good to hear :)

 

Regarding Arvo, I should have linked only the piano songs because yes, he is a modern classical guy and he has a lot of work that doesn't contain "piano-only" songs.

Famous piano examples: 

Für Alina- http://soundcloud.com/misspaq/arvo-part-fur-alina

Spiegel im Spiegel- http://soundcloud.com/karim-monir/arvo-p-rt-spiegel-im-spiegel
