A superb double CD set of a concert in Berlin 2007, a performance with Ludovico Einaudi on piano, accompanied by a six piece string ensemble. With the support of lavish strings and minimal electronic back up, this release should appeal too many outside of his fan base. Already this release is play listed at CFM radio, giving a guaranteed play twice a week.
“Whilst there is some truth in the argument that Einaudi often constructs his music out of the cliches of popular culture, there are also more subtle layers at work here...when a composer can shape musical expression as simply, distinctly and directly as this, it is difficult not to listen up and take note.”
