With Ludovico Einaudi

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The Italian keyboardist and composer Ludovico Einaudi joins John Schaefer for this New Sounds program.  Einaudi’s latest effort is “In a Time Lapse,” recorded in a wooden room in a monastery near Verona, Italy.  Listen to selections from that record, as well as a liberal sampling of his music; from solo keyboard works to pieces featuring forward-thinking violinist Daniel Hope, to collaborations with kora player Ballake Sissoko and duduk master Djivan Gasparian from Armenia. 

Hear the influence of the ecstatic trance tradition at work, both drawing from Einaudi’s experiences with the Italian tarantella and Mande music (Mali.) Ludovico Einaudi performed at the Festival in the Desert in Mali some years ago and is currently on tour.  He performs this Saturday night, May 18 in New York at Town Hall. When not on tour, he lives on his family’s vineyard in Italy.

One of my favorite piano albums is
"Music for Three Pianos," featuring Harold Budd, Daniel Lentz,
and Ruben Garcia. I have searched and have not found anything else remotely in this vein. This is a question for the mastermind taste of John Schaefer:

John, can you refer me to related piano works of this quality?

I had appreciated your excellent program for years until local WBEZ stopped broadcasting fine music in Chicago. Recently I discovered I can listen through your podcasting. I am elated. Back to the world of enlightened sounds.
Many thanks, Frank
