The inspiration for Ludovico Einaudi's I Giorni was a 12th-century folk song from Mali about a hippopotamus who was cherished by the residents of a nearby village but killed by a hunter. "The song," writes Einaudi in his succinct liner note, "is sung as a lament for the death of a king or a great person or for the loss of a loved one." The result is a tender and introspective set of 14 piano pieces, performed on this recording by the composer himself.

I Giorni comes hot on the heels of Eden Roc, released just eight months earlier, which demonstrates Einaudi's popularity. I Giorni is the Italian composer's second all-piano disc, the first being Le Onde.

Einaudi's piano compositions, staples of the Classic FM diet, owe more to the music of Satie and Michael Nyman than to his former teacher Luciano Berio. Indeed, several movements of I Giorni, "Quel che resta" in particular, contain more than a passing reference to Nyman's soundtrack to The Piano. The pervading mood is melancholic and soporific--this is music to wind down to and let wash over you. --Rebecca Agnew

Well... Another addition to my Einaudi Collection and I can say not a thought of disappointment has crossed my mind. Einaudi's inspiration seems to come from a song he heard whilst driving through Bamako in Mali with musician Toumani Diabate. The song was broadcasted on the radio, it was gentle and slightly melancholy and called 'Mali Sajio'.
The album consists of Solo Piano composed and performed by Ludovico Einaudi. Each piece takes your thoughts on a new journey but still with the trademark of the composers much loved music.
Should you buy this CD? Without a doubt.. it's great!
You could also try his latest film score... Dr Zhivago.. released in December 2002.

Three weeks ago I was idly listening to Classic FM when I heard a piece of solo piano music that left me mesmerised. The piece was "Limbo" from I Giorni by Ludovico Einaudi. Inspired by what I had heard, I tracked down the album. On it I discovered music of such beauty that some tracks moved me to tears. Composition and musicianship is superb, the pieces appearing initially very simple but revealing hidden depths on every listen. In short, this album is simply exquisite.

As I am typing my review I am listening to this album - it is wonderful, soothing and inspiring. The meldoies are simple but do not just fade into the backgrond, they gently demand that you listen to them and you will want to. I have played I Giorni many times since I received it and each time I hear something different within it. I am so pleased to own this delightful music - my next step? To learn to play the piano of course!

I also found this thanks to Classic FM. I don't normally like this sort of classical music, but I found myself crying when I listened to this album. It stirred up such an emtion inside me. I would recommend it to anyone. I have played it to my friends too and they all enjoyed it even though they don't all like classical music

I was at a party when I first heard Einaudi's music. Instantly, a new dimension opened up. Before, the background music had been pleasant enough, but suddenly it was as if there was nothing in the room but these exquisite piano notes, reaching out to me, trickling down through layers of stress and distraction, clearing everything away and leaving only the most perfect feeling of pure peace . I bought the Einaudi Collection the very next day, and today, a year later, I was given a copy of I Giorni. I can't recommend it too highly - it is utterly beautiful and you can feel it touching your soul and, somehow, putting everything right. Wonderful.

Like another reviewer here, I don't listen to classical music much at all. When my friend gave me this to listen to I was sceptical, but it is simply stunning. The music is just so beautiful and I too found myself with tears in my eyes at some of the tracks. Usually I'll be multi-tasking when listening to music, but with this album I have to sit back, listen and let it flow through me. Highly recommended.

To describe this new album in words is very difficult.
I have found Einaudi's work very thought provoking and refreshing; yet this new album is inspirational.
He came to write this music from a trip he took to Mali, thus this music is based on elements of Africa, which he blends so well into this music, including the Nile, the Desert and the Morning Star. It is invigorating, brilliant and profound.
A must buy!

I'd heard Einaudi's work many times on ClassicFM and had always noticed it but never really gave it any special attention. The album intrigued me because it is a 24-bit/96kHz digital recording which brings huge potential benefits in sound quality and musical reproduction.
I bought a copy and it sounded excellent, the musical compositions are extremely good and very well played indeed by Einaudi himself. Despite initial reservations of buying an album dedicated to solo piano, I was very pleasantly surprised. It is probably the best quality classical recording I have on CD.
You have to give this album a great deal of attention and listen actively otherwise it becomes like the same Einaudi music played on the radio which has a habit of blending into the background, all sounding a bit the same and without the attention it deserves. Buy this album with confidence if you like the composer and can spare the time to listen properly.
