Ah, Ludovico Einaudi. Eternal accompanier of one's wistful teenage bus journeys mediating on life's big problems. This new album from him is the first in the series called 'Seven Days Walking', which sees the man himself accompanied by cello, violin, and viola. 'Part One' is pretty much the usual fare from Einaudi: elegant, sparse piano parts with hushed, almost reverential backing instrumentation.
I think of Einaudi as the indie sadboi of the classical world. His arrangements owe more to the scales and modes used in modern pop music than that of traditional classic music. Einaudi reportedly devised these pieces while taking long winter walks in mountains among snow. This can be heard in the almost glacial modulation of the different instrument parts, as well as the chilly atmosphere of many of the songs. The pieces are at once calming but a little unsettling too. The calm before, or after, the storm.
Songs for buses, songs for mountains, go get 'Seven Days Walking - Day One' now.
