Re-entry. 1st of Einaudi's 3 entries.

He's particularly famous for his pared-down piano tunes, but this piece by Einaudi expands his trademark soundscape to include a string orchestra. The melody may be simple, but the piece gradually builds from almost nothing into a busy hive of musical activity. It's the title track from Einaudi's 2006 album, with each piece demonstrating his ability to compose utterly simple yet beguiling melodies.

Divenire album, Sony Classical (2006).
