In A Time Lapse is, like his previous works, dominated by piano and is a delight. This album seems to have slightly more accompaniment by strings and other very unobtrusive electronic/synths, but they never form the backbone of any of the tracks. There's little point in doing a track by track analysis of the album because it is simply stunning from start to finish. I did particularly like "In A Time Lapse" (Track 2) and "Brothers" (Track 7), just because I particularly liked the melody and rhythm of these tracks. The rest are all sublime as well!
The album runs for just short of 1 hour 7 minutes, and the sound quality is brilliant like in previous releases.
One thing I should say is that I disagree somewhat with the previous reviewer Big Jim who said this sounds more ambient than classical. I would say that it is classical, albeit minimalist like his previous works. I guess it's just semantics, but I would associate ambient music with elongated chord sequences that lacks a huge degree of melody and movement. On the contrary, I have always thought Einaudi has had an excellent sense of both melody and rhythm. Sure, this isn't Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack music, nor is it classical music written for a full orchestra. But one of Einaudi's strengths is getting the emotion across with what is a fairly sparse accompaniment.Read more ›
But then, after a while, after several listens, certain moments tend to stand out, magical moments that I hadn't noticed before. And then whole tracks stand out, ones that I keep returning to, listening to over and over again.....
"In A Time Lapse" works just this way: the initial disappointment, nothing as strong or as hypnotic as "Nightbook," nothing that stands out, nothing that catches - and then such RELIEF when suddenly I was snagged. It was the track "Newton's Cradle" that got me first, then "Experience," both of which I just want to listen to again and again until they are seared into my mind. Now I can't get enough of the CD and I haven't even received it yet - I've been listening to it on Cloud Player.
This is quite brilliant: everything I want from an Einaudi CD. It's hypnotic and dreamy, just a little edgier than "Nightbook," more complex than "Divenire." It's also taken years so arrive as "Islands" was yet another compilation. A new Einaudi CD is always an event and it seems the longer it takes me to like it, the more wondrous it is. "In a Time Lapse" is truly wondrous.
In the last track 'Burning' Ludovico gives us a glorious finale to this album, with its soul-stirring crescendos of divine melody as the piece progresses, and harmonies that, whenever I listen to this track, generate such a deep feeling of ecstasy that I never fail to find myself covered in goose bumps! I adore this album and there is not one single aspect of it that is not totally pleasing to me, even down to the photographs of the beautiful Autumn trees on the cover.
'In A Time Lapse' has to be one of, if not the best album Ludovico Einaudi has produced to date, and is something everyone who loves music that is guaranteed to touch the inner depth of their emotions should hear. Congratulations and heartfelt gratitude to Ludovico for yet another great and inspiring gift to the world of the music of our time.
A gifted young composer, Einuadi became a pupil of the great Luciano Berio and it was Berio who freed him from the idea that pop and classical should never meet; the scores to films ensued, and as his music spread so did his increasing popularity.
In a Time Lapse - as in previous albums - features the piano prominently, though here the music gradually grows out into rich orchestral sonorities; this feels like an entirely natural living process, as the colours transform, out of stasis and into bloom. Always though the piano underpins the advancement and again and again we return to that calm and inner sanctum which is Einaudi's own voice: those gossamer-like piano chords.
I Virtuosi Italiani are joined by violinist Daniel Hope Spheres - Einaudi, Glass, Nyman, Pärt, Richter [+digital booklet], augmented at times by synthesisers and electronica for what is a mesmeric and at times hypnotic journey.
