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.

EuroMinimalism, Part II

Monday, September 20, 2010

For this New Sounds, listen to a follow-up to last night’s show, with minimal and post-minimal music from Michael Nyman, Anton Batagov, Ludovico Einaudi, Nik Bärtsch, and others. Nik Bartsch’s Ronin make "ritual groove," with repetitive motifs that gradually evolve. We'll also hear music from the Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi, and English minimalist Michael Nyman. Plus there's some music from the Russian keyboard player/composer Anton Batagov, who self-produces electronic and experimental works and releases them on his own private label. And as always, much more.
