LUDOVICO EINAUDI returns to Tallinn with new studio project

Following a sold out show during “Elements” tour in Estonia (his first ever in Baltics), LUDOVICO EINAUDI is returning to Tallinn with his new tour “Seven Days Walking” and will be performing at Alexela Concert Hall on March 17, 2020.

If one man embodies the kaleidoscopic new musical world of the ‘user-generated’ age it is Ludovico Einaudi. Topping audience polls from the classical to the avant-garde, Einaudi has not only become one of Europe’s most popular composers, but has rendered traditional ideas of musical genre and audience divide obsolete.

His new project “Seven Days Walking” is released over seven months throughout 2019, three and a half years after “Elements” and a triumphal world tour. “Seven Days Walking” could be Einaudi’s masterwork. Seven albums (Day One, Day Two, etc. until Day Seven) – variation after variation on a theme, all of them inspired by a winter’s walk he repeated over a period of time in the Alps. It’s a complete world, dreamed up in seven days. Each episode is focused on several main themes, which are recurring in different form: seven variations following the same imaginary itinerary. Or the same itinerary, retraced in seven different moments. “I hope that you listen to one album one day, and another the next, and can’t figure out which is which,” Einaudi says playfully. This is music expressly designed for you to lose yourself in, a vast library of impressionistic pieces – pianistic reflections of moon on snow; an interlude of birdsong replicated in melody; the musical suggestion of fox tracks, recorded with such delicacy you can hear the pads on the keys of his grand piano.

"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 colors. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album. In the mountains of Switzerland, I had time to focus. In one sense I had a clear direction, but I was searching for a direction too. Your mind starts to wander. Where is the final point? It became a kind of meditation. My thinking was thinking completely free.” What makes Seven Days Walking unique is the scale and complexity of its variations. “Some people prefer to change location all the time,” he says. “But even as a child, I did the same walk to school, with little differences, and I enjoyed the repetition. Within the familiarity you notice the changes – the weather, the light, the people.”

“I like the idea that you get lost,” Einaudi says. “Like when you return to a place after six months and there is something familiar, but something has changed. This is a project about memory. Everyone creates their own images – you probably have your own walk, your own background, in mind.”  As such, Seven Days Walking is a metaphor for the way Einaudi’s music works on the mind, going someway to explaining its endless adaptability across the worlds of film and visual arts, and his broad worldwide fanbase, which includes such famous names as Nicky Minaj and Iggy Pop. Increasingly popular with new, young audiences living in a highly connected and technology-focused world, Einaudi’s music and live shows offer something meditative, a private space away from distraction. “Listening to live music, everyone can be connected to one sound, but everyone is also able to be alone in the experience, and wander in their thoughts,” he says.

Einaudi’s music is ambient, meditative and often introspective.  His  sweeping compositions are deeply touching, and draw inspiration from classical and international music, minimalism, and contemporary pop, but always with the piano at the heart of the sound.

Ludovico Einaudi’s talent is praised worldwide,  his deeply touching and emotional compositions have been part of countless cinematic masterpieces, while Einaudi’s ability to fuse traditional ideas of music genres with minimalism and contemporary pop has gained him a name of true and rare talent. Einaudi is one of Europe’s most popular pianists and composers, and is the first classical composer who has ever reached UK’s pop music charts.

The music Einaudi creates has the same uniqueness as his background – Einaudi’s grandfather was an Italian president and his father owned one of the biggest publishing houses in Italy and even Europe. Einaudi’s need to find his own path brought him to studies of music – in his early years he studied classical music, but later on, while working as the assistant to the master of avant-garde music Luciano Berio, he learned to break down borders between academic and contemporary music.  However, the most important thing that Einaudi learned from his teacher was the idea that music is everywhere. In buildings, animals, dreams, colours, emotions, voice, language, time, fear, motion, rain – everywhere. And it is only waiting to be transformed into sound. The closest he would get to defining his music is to talk loosely about ‘sounds without words’, in a tradition that extends from Bach to Part and this to some extent extends to even talking about the music. There are no words, although, in the end, there have to be some.

Einaudi’s emotional music is well known by lovers of cinema and TV shows. His music is found in the drama Black Swan; French comedy-drama“The Intouchables”, Russell Crowe’s directorial debut “The Water Diviner”, the much discussed biographical movie about Joaquin Phoenix I am Still Here; the TV show Doctor Zhivago; and many other cinematic works. Einaudi has been nominated for an Oscar for the movie Fuori del mondo and he has received the prestigious Echo Klassik Award.
