Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

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 fourteen piano pieces. This work was written after hearing the kora playing of Toumani Diabate whilst traveling in Mali.
