Ludovico Einaudi – Live from the Steve Jobs Theatre2019
Ludovico Einaudi exclusive performance, filmed and recorded on June 12, 2019, at Apple Park’s Steve Jobs Theater—isn’t really the point. “I prefer the unfinished state,” he tells Apple Music. “It’s a place where things might still change and evolve.” That approach allows for a certain kind of magic to happen—and it’s key to this world-premiere work. Einaudi’s unique musical language melds classical compositional technique with influences from rock, folk, pop, and other genres to create a wide and daring embrace of style and form. As these 12 pieces—at turns joyful, melancholic, and ruminative—unfold, we get to witness one of music’s most game-changing artists in a rare environment, simultaneously onstage and in his studio, where, amid his piano, desk, books, cameras, and other tools, new forms of expression are constantly taking root. Backdropped by vivid, thought-provoking visuals, Einaudi, cellist Redi Hasa, and violinist/violist Federico Mecozzi mix pieces from the composer’s concert repertoire—taken from albums including Elegy for the Arctic, Elements, and 2019’s Seven Days Walking series—with others played for the very first time: “There is a balance between moments of ‘search’ and others where the music flows with more definition,” Einaudi says of the work’s exploratory instincts. “It’s a creative space where your mind can still wander.”

Ground-breaking composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi announces the release of his new collection ‘Einaudi Undiscovered’, out on 18th September. A selection of rarities, hidden gems and unreleased tracks handpicked by Einaudi himself from his 25-year career.
“Every time I listen to my albums, I realise that each contains one or more highlights that have captured the attention of the listener more than others have. Sometimes, beyond my intentions, some pieces become all-time favourites, while the rest live in the shadows. I have selected songs from different albums and film scores that have been kept more hidden than others, hoping to reveal some of the pieces that I consider as an important part of my repertoire. For me it was nice to look back, brush up my memories, being surprised and somehow rediscover myself, and compose a new necklace made of stones of my past” – Ludovico Einaudi

Seven Days Walking2019
‘Seven Days Walking’: seven bodies of music to be released over seven consecutive months. The first, ‘Seven Days Walking: Day One’, which interweaves piano and strings in his unmistakable style, is Einaudi’s 14th studio album and will be released on 15th March, on Decca. ‘Seven Days Walking: Day Two’ follows a month later. Each ‘day’ is then released, digitally, a month apart, leading up to ‘Day Seven’ which will be released in the autumn in a box-set of the complete Seven Days.
Inspiration for the entire project derived from walks that Einaudi would take through the mountains in winter. He explains, “In January last year I often went for long walks in the mountains, always following more or less the same trail. It snowed heavily, and my thoughts roamed free inside the storm, where all shapes, stripped bare by the cold, lost their contours and colours. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album.”
The first album focuses on several main themes, which then recur in different forms on the following albums – seven variations following the same imaginary itinerary. Or the same itinerary, retraced at seven different times.
Ludovico talks about the album “Taranta Project” coming out in April 21st – The concept, the production and the collaborations.
