This review is from: Echoes: The Einaudi Collection (Audio CD)
I first heard The Days (I Giorni) on Classical FM, as a student at College I have recently discovered the delights of listening to classical music when I am studying, I find it helps immensly when you want something on in the background, but not something too heavy that you will probably get distracted by. After listening to I Giorni I was so taken I bought the album, not even knowing how to spell it. As soon as I got it I played track 4, the days, almost constantly. But as I listened to other tracks I was pleasantly suprised as track 1 was the music played over the John Lewis advert, the company I work for, which was kind of nice. Being a pianist myself I can sit for hours on end, running my fingers over the keys, composing pieces, instantly forgetting some of them, but I love it and Einaudi does just that. Its soothing and calm, something you may call easy listening but you have to appreciate the talent that he expresses.
This CD can be put on repeat and listened to all day, in the bath with a glass of wine or simply sat and appreciating great music.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to find music to relax by. Every now and again there is a CD where every track brings something new and can be listened to again and again. This is definitely one of them.
