7 Days Walking: Day 1
an inevitably beautiful record that sees the Italian pianist evoke the grand majesty of snow-ridden nature through delicate and emotive pianoplay that fans of Hauschka and lubomyr Melnyk will adore.
Inspiration for the entire project derived from walks that Einaudi would take through the mountains in the winter time. The snow that had fallen obscured all usual shapes and colours. "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 colours. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album" - Ludovico Einaudi.
