iTunes Review

As bands like Sigur Rós and Godspeed You! Black Emperor have pushed rock music into modern classical territory, Ludovico Einaudi’s Elements achieves the same crossover coming from the other side. His inspirations may be rooted in academia (Kandinsky, the periodic table of the elements, Euclidean geometry), but these melancholic compositions are both accessible and instantly affecting. Through intensifying piano-and-strings interplay, pocket-sized symphonies like “Petricor” and “Whirling Winds” match the captivating crescendos of the stormiest post-rock odysseys.

A Birthday Present from Einaudi

My favorite composer's next album drops 8 days after my birthday! For a while iTunes let you listen to samples of all the tracks, although they have since disabled this feature. From what I heard, it sounds like a great album, somewhere between "Divenire" and "In a Time Lapse" sonically. Einaudi says this album will be about "the Elements", as in the periodic table, as well as mathematical ideas. As a student of math, I'm really excited to see what he comes up with. This is the only thing I've ever preordered, so that might tell you how into this I am.

Mr.

It would be colossally difficult to equal the success of "In a Time Lapse", but “Elements" has the potential to rise up to the challenge. Once again, Ludovico’s album is brimming with cinematic tunes and idiosyncratic fusions. He has an unabated fascination in experimenting fresh sounds, which has contributed hugely to his creative craft. Every track has its unique identity, but they all compliment one another to beget a storyline. It would be next to impossible to label Ludovico’s music, but the significance of his art lies in the fact that it resonates with many.

Pre-Order

Listening to the song they've released to temp you to pre-order the album reminds me of another song by Einuadi but I can't remember the name. It's very similar but it's still beautiful. Maybe Elements means elements of other songs? Ludovico Einaudi makes wonderful music. I have a few albums and some partial albums. His music is in quite a few of my playlists. I'll wait to order it until after I can listen to the other tracks.
