CLASSICAL BLISS

Ludovico Einaudi - Seven Days Walking [2019] (7 x CD's)

"Seven Days Walking" is seven bodies of music released over seven consecutive months. The first, "Seven Days Walking": Day One interweaves piano and strings in his unmistakable style, is Einaudi’s 14th studio album. Each of the six-month following the initial release a new released followed which then recur in different forms on the following albums, seven variations following the same imaginary itinerary. Or the same itinerary, retraced at seven different times.

Inspiration for the entire project derived from walks that Einaudi would take through the mountains in winter. He explains, "In January last year I often went for long walks in the mountains, always following more or less the same trail. It snowed heavily, and my thoughts roamed free inside the storm, where all shapes, stripped bare by the cold, lost their contours and colours. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album." 

The first album focuses on several main themes, which then recur in different forms on the following albums – seven variations following the same imaginary itinerary. Or the same itinerary, retraced at seven different times.  Seven Days Walking was recorded between September and October 2018 in Schloss Elmau (Germany) and Air Studios in London (England)

The fascination of the music emanates from the beauty of its spare elegance and the tranquility of its moderately slow pace while it evokes a feeling of transient melancholy and nostalgia. The economy and spare means of the music evokes such richness of feelings, contentment and relaxation. (Amazon)

There is fascination in the music of the Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi.
