A new entry for the Italian composer, who has a long and rich history in the Hall of Fame
The title of this work by Ludovico Einaudi means, simply, white clouds, and it's a title which perfectly captures the calm atmosphere conveyed in this work for solo piano.
The track comes from the hugely popular composer's 2004 album Una Mattina. Einaudi himself said of the recording: 'If someone asked me about this album, I would say it is a collection of songs linked together by a story. But unlike my other albums, it doesn't belong to a time in the past.'
'It speaks about me now, my life, the things around me. My piano, which I have nicknamed Tagore, my children Jessica and Leo, the orange kilim carpet that brightens up the living room, the clouds sailing slowly across the sky, the sunlight coming through the window, the music I listen to, the books I read and those I don't read, my memories, my friends and the people I love.'
