Ludovico Einaudi may well become the "Satie of the 21?st century". His minimalist, deceptively simple piano works reach a massive audience well beyond the strict boundaries of traditional classical music. CDs with his music break sales records, the hypnotic calmness of his works being the perfect recipe against modern world's stress and fatigue.
Einaudi's piano works fit in logically with Jeroen van Veen's survey of Minimalist Piano Music, and this 7?CD set is the most substantial collection available at present.
New recordings, liner notes by the artist.
