Ludovico Einaudi: Seven Days Walking: Piano or Keyboard

Book Only | Piano or Keyboard
Composer Ludovico Einaudi
Publisher Chester Music
Instrumentation Piano
Ground-breaking composer-pianist Ludovico Einaudi presents Seven Days Walking: Day One, the first of seven bodies of work to be released over seven consecutive months. The album focuses on several main themes, which then recur as variations on the following albums. Originally for piano, violin, viola and cello, the music has been specially arranged in close collaboration with the composer for solo piano and is presented here in one stunning volume.
“I remember that in January 2018 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 colors. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album.”
Each episode features variations on themes that came to Einaudi as he walked over the same snowy route, with the episodes modeled on the days of the week.
“The idea first came to me as I was listening to the recordings of the first sessions: each version seemed to me to have its own personality, with subtleties so distinct from one another that I was unable to choose which I preferred. I associated everything with walking, with the experience of following the same routes over and over, discovering new details each time. And so in the end I decided to thread them all together in a sort of musical labyrinth, a little like stepping inside the twists and turns of the creative process, to understand how a musical idea can develop in multiple directions, and changing once again at the moment in which it is heard.”
Lauded as his masterpiece, Seven Days Walking is the latest in the esteemed composer and pianist’s amazing body of work. Einaudi is the most streamed classical artist, clocking over two billion streams. His music has graced film soundtracks such as Xavier Dolan's "Mommy" and Russell Crowe's "The Water Diviner."
Seven Days Walking was recorded between September and October 2018 in Schloss Elmau (Germany) and Air Studios in London (England).
