Ludovico Einaudi

Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi has released several albums of piano and orchestral music, sometimes including synthesized sounds as well. Of his albums I’m familiar with (the most recent four), I think my favorite is Divenire.

Here are a few of his songs (YouTube links), starting with the first one that I ever heard:

These are his four latest albums, as of this writing:

  • Una Mattina (2004; piano and cello)
  • Divenire (2007; piano and strings)
  • Nightbook (2009; piano and electronic)
  • In a Time Lapse (2013; piano and electronic)

If you like Einaudi, you might also like the album Quarto Tempo by Roberto Cacciapaglia. Here’s a song from that one (YouTube link):
