It wasn’t but a few weeks ago that I wrote about my discovery of the contemporary Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi, and here I go again. You must understand, it couldn’t be helped.
Ludovico Einaudi released a new double album in the US iTunes Store this week that should be a staple in every music collection, regardless of whether you consider yourself a classical music aficionado. It’s called “Islands – Essential Einaudi” and it is a compilation of 27 of the very best pieces from his many albums over the past 15 years or so, with a few new ones sprinkled in for good measure.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. Below are a few sample tracks from the album.
