Ludovico Einaudi - Islands - Essential Einaudi
Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi will already be familiar to people who have heard his scores for such productions as This Is England '86 and Black Swan, as well as being a permanent play list fixture on radio stations such as Classic FM. Einaudi's glorious compositions, with their fluid arpeggios and minimalist arrangements, are that rare breed of "classical music" that will appeal to anyone; they are like sunsets, quiet beaches, a forest walk after a rainstorm. Mixing a variety of genres, classical, pop and electronic, the songs are as evocative and expressive as any great indie anthem. Starting with the quiet beauty of 'I Giorni' the album brings a sense of calm and tranquility that cannot help but enchant and delight. Other highlights are 'Le Onde', the passionate 'Divinire' and the exquisite beauty of 'Primavera', all mainstays on classical radio stations. For those who already have his entire collection, Islands - Essential Einaudi will be a wonderful mix tape; for others, a perfect introduction to this man's glorious music.
