Ludovico Einaudi trio on PRI - Echoes

Bookmark and Share

On March 15 Ludovico Einaudi released the first episode of a seven-part new album called Seven Days Walking (Decca Records/Universal), before embarking on a North American tour at the end of May. Recorded in September and October 2018 in Schloss Elmau (Germany) and Air Studios in London (England), Seven Days Walking happens as seven episodes modeled after the days in a week, one episode a month through September. A physical box set of all seven albums will be released in December. Each episode focuses on several main themes, which recur in different forms; seven variations following the same imaginary itinerary. 

Einaudi's Seven Days Walking Tour hit select North American cities on May 31 and first shows will take place at New York City's Carnegie Hall (June 4), Philadelphia Kimmel Center (June 1), San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall (June 14), and Los Angeles's Walt Disney Hall (June 16). 

Over the years, Ludovico has had a couple of Echoes 'CD of the Month' Picks and has appeared live on the show on four previous occasions.  Today, Echoes welcomes him back for his fifth appearance and his first time in our home at Echoes, to promote the new album - Seven Days Walking, a 7 CD set of deep chamber works for piano, violin and cello.
