Product Description

Product Description

Ludovico Einaudis aesthetic of emptiness has won him legions of fans worldwide, and Jeroen van Veens survey of the piano music which is central to Einaudis style belongs with his survey of minimalists including Glass and Nyman who are less concerned in music as an expressive language than as a commercial artefact.

Likewise, his listeners absorb the music less in the sense of engaging with meaning than as backdrop to activity or release from stress. The works on this compendious collection are nearly all songs of between

3 and 7 minutes, with the influence from pop culture that this brevity implies, and sharing with the pop world an economically aware employment of simplicity and repetition so as not unduly to tax the attentionspan of the consumer.

As Jeroen van Veen remarks, Contrary to ordinary classical music, minimal music demands little of the listener but to escape lifes troubles for a moment; no comprehensive musical structures ask their full attention.

All his compositions are more or less based on the music he heard when he was a child, when his mother played Chopin Preludes. Einaudi (grandson of the politician Luigi Einaudi) loved the almost hypnotic soft sound of the upright piano.

Because of her he started to play the piano and tried to find his own way. The melody (if there is any at all) always goes down, hardly leaving the classical path of harmonies. His music is ambient, calm, meditative and often introspective, drawing on minimalism and contemporary pop.

I have other CD's from this gent and really loved it. But this is all totally different music. Some dark, some happy, some moody, some emotional. Thought it would be more of what I had heard before on my other CD's. If you are looking for lots of really different music from this man then this is for you. I wanted to put it on in background when people came round etc. but some of it is very dark, moody and suddenly loud and dramatic. He is extremely good at what he does, but not as uplifting as I was hoping.

Intelligent music without pretense 11 Jun. 2014
By jhobbs2 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Outstanding execution by Jeroen Van Veen with superb sound quality. Einaudi's work is difficult to categorize as he pulls classical, pop, new age and cinematic ideas into thoughtfully crafted modern pieces. Highly appealing because it's simply all very good.
Mediative joy from a leading Italian composer. 3 Jun. 2014
By Mountain Wanderer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My first taste of Ludovicoe Einaudi's wonderful music came watching the offbeat and terrific French 2011 film, THE INTOUCHABLES, for which he had done the score. An ad in the BBC Music magazine told me that Jeroen van Veen, the Dutch pianist, had put together a seven volume compendium of Einaudi's beautiful piano efforts. Having liked van Veen's playing on other CD's, I leaped at the chance to download this collection. If you like the work of folks like George Winston or David Lanz, then you owe it to yourself to give this a listen.

Unfortunately, there are no samples to listen to on the Amazon site, but van Veen has posted some excerpts from the albums on YouTube. Best of all, you can download this entire seven-volume collection for just $8.99 on Amazon. A true bargain for some gorgeous music!
Wonderful collection. Well played 3 May 2015
By Henry D. Friedman - Published on Amazon.com

Wonderful collection. Well played. With excellent technical recording quality, an aspect of some Einaudi recordings, which disappointed me. IMO, most fans of the Einaudi music catalogue, will enjoy this wonderful collection.
