Album Summary

>Einaudi, Ludovico : I Giorni, for piano
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

2001 release from the world renowned symphonic composer. The inspiration for Ludovico Einaudi's 'I Giorni' was a 12th-century folk song from Mali about a hippopotamus who was cherished by the residents of a nearby village but killed by a hunter. 'The song,' writes Einaudi in his succinct liner note, 'is sung as a lament for the death of a king or a great person or for the loss of a loved one.' The result is a tender & introspective set of 14 piano pieces. This work was written after hearing the kora playing of Toumani Diabate whilst traveling in Mali. Recorded in 24-bit/96 kHz. Ricordi.
