Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ludovico Einaudi studied piano & composition at the Conservatory in Milan & also with composer Luciano Berio. His early career produced several chamber & orchestral compositions, but he expanded his works in the mid-1980s by creating a series of successful dance & multimedia works. His move to film music in the mid-1990's seemed a logical progression where his innovative & imaginative composing style has had significant impact on his peers, who have bestowed him with 4 major international awards as of this writing. His 21st Century pieces fuse a myriad of styles, including ambient, minimalist and avant-garde, drawn from his admiration of rock groups like Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Peppers, attracting fans from across the popular musical Read more spectrum. This collection includes works from the albums "Stanze", "Le Onde", "Eden Roc" and "I Giorni" along with 3 new pieces recorded live at St Luke's Church, London on 10th July 2003, giving listeners an excellent entrée into the musical world.

 Emotive, Evocative, ... Einaudi January 14, 2013 By John  H. (Anaheim , CA) See All My Reviews "I became totally swept away by the power, the drive, and the immersive rhythms of This great collection. The minute I heard his music on KUSC.org, I had to have it. Once you hear it, you will as well." Report Abuse
 Too much of a good thing... March 30, 2012 By Milton R. M. (El Cerrito, CA) See All My Reviews "Upon hearing "The Days" (I Giorni) on KDFC, from "Echoes - The Einaudi Collection", I fell in love and ordered the album. Unfortunately, for me, the songs from the entire album seem to sound much the same. I would have done better just picking up the one cut from iTunes. Someone who loves "Space Music" would probably appreciate it much more than I do." Report Abuse
