Einaudi has excelled himself this time. Not only has he written another crop of the most delightful, hauntingly beautiful melodies, but he has employed the power and variety of strings, (violin, cello), and the amazing oboe-like sound of the Armenian Duduk, (remember the sound-track to Gladiator).
It is the combination of these instruments that gives Eden Roc such great interest, depth and variety. Einaudi's simple themes, (sometimes a little shallow when heard on the piano alone), are now brilliantly enriched. The strings add depth and power, and the use of the duduk is a stroke of sheer genius. It is the perfect instrument to accomapany his intensly haunting melodies, because it produces such a haunting sound itself.
I thought Le Onde was good, but Eden Roc is superb, incredible, the best yet. Is there more to come from Einaudi? I can't wait?

This album is my introduction to Einaudi after hearing a couple of works on Classic FM, and I'm not disappointed. There is so much on this CD, and my only complaint would be that there is too much - it seems that some of the pieces have been cut short to fit and could benefit from more minutes of luscious sounds which capture your emotions and imagination.
There are many stand-out pieces on this CD, and my favourites keep shifting - it seems the piece currently playing is my fave! This is delightful music. Buy it and enjoy!

Having heard a couple of Einaudi's pieces, I decided that this album was sure to continue in a haunting, engaging mode. Many of the pieces indeed reflect a rather simple minimalistic style, combining lyrical melodies with graceful accompaniments. After listening to two or three tracks, Einaudi's style shines through, creating a positive sense of slight predictability, as the pieces seem to progress how you want them to. If anyone admires the music of the Michael Nyman, I suggest this album would be of great interest to you as there are many similarities in style.

I bought this album, having been impressed by Einaudi's tracks on a National Trust compilation CD and on Classic FM. I was not disappointed - each track has a beautiful and relaxing quality to it, great for helping to unwind after a hard day, or for simply enjoying on a beautiful day. You will love this if you enjoy gentle, melodious, relaxing instrumental music. In my opinion this album has a style that blends well with the works of the traditional classical composers and also with contempory artists, such as Rolf Lovland's Secret Garden and Karl Jenkins' Adiemus. I enjoy a wide range of music, ranging from rock through to classical, and this album is up among my all time favourites.

Having heard two other albums by Einoudi including the best of an Le Onde, I decided to purchase Eden Roc expecting more of the same exceptional masterpeices. But I was pleasantly surprised to hear so much more depth and fervour in this work. With guitar and violins integrated into many of the pieces, it just makes some of the songs so incredibly haunting and emotive. There is a lot more structure to this album in comparrison to Le Onde and more diversity throughout the album, with some pieces going on for a ages with just pipes and a little bit of piano, and others quite vivacious and light. Either way, this album is guaranteed to touch your soul and either make you very depressed or very happy.

While listening to Le Onde, I often wondered how Einaudi's wonderful melodies would be benefitted by adding extra instruments to supplement the solo piano. This, however, is not Le Onde; its melodies, though distinctly those of Ludovico Einaudi, rarely manage to be as simply effective as those of its predecessor. They are certainly good, but not as good as precedents would have led me to believe. Apart from two or three excellent tracks, the rest strike me as being rather bland. Having said that, where it is good, it really shines. Buy it by all means, but Le Onde is much superior and that album should be in your collection first.

Einaudi is a unique talent and this is still his best album to date. Joined this time by The David Quartet, Einaudi perfects his clever and powerful melodies which he fills with emotion even in his minimalist pieces.

This music has the unique quality of making the listener yearn for the very next phrase, as each tune progresses.

Some of the pieces like Nefeli and Yerevan you will probably recognise from television and advertising.

The tracks are not instant-this is far from a simple disposable pop album. Instead these tracks are beautifully composed and expertly arranged which came from the labours of a perfectionist. They will stand the test of time.

After hearing the strongest track, in my opinion, called Giorni Dispari, I knew that I had found something for which I had been looking for a long time.

Ludovico Einaudi is a special discovery. There are not many like him.

Fully recomended
