EDITORS’ NOTES

Einaudi’s 14th studio album is the first in a set of seven albums released over seven consecutive months throughout 2019 as the pianist/composer retraces the same wintry Alpine walk seven times in seven days. Each walk inspires new reflections, new meditations. Einaudi sets out his intentions here, his searching, plaintive piano mixing with whispering strings as he grapples with nature’s ever-shifting mask and mourns its transience. “Golden Butterflies” hesitantly flutters, the sinewy “Cold Wind” both comforts and disturbs. At last the mists clear in “Ascent,” Einaudi’s music reaching for a new optimism. A magical start to seven kaleidoscopic journeys.

Remarkably Beautiful

Path of the Fossils took my breath away. It brought me back to the time I first heard Ludovico. Such emotion. The best driving and studying music. So peaceful. It helps ground me back to the Earth and to my soul. How have we been so lucky to have 7 months of new music from the MAN!?

Nothing short of amazing.

The man is back! I found Ludo a few years ago. Have been listening ever since. Had never cared for classical in the past, but their is something about his sound that just grips you. Checked out his website & nearly if not all of his shows are always sold out (which says a lot). Would definitely see him live. I've found other classical pieces I like, but nothing as quite as smooth as L.E. Can't wait till the 15th. 4 long years for a new one!

S.P. ,

Wonderful!

He’s back! Finding myself again. It gives me peace and makes my soul happy.
