Ludovico Einaudi’s Seven Days Walking is an impressionistic glimpse into the creative process. Einaudi drew inspiration for the project from a walk he repeated in the Alps. Each episode features variations on themes that came to Einaudi as he walked over the same snowy route, with the episodes modeled on the days of the week.
"The idea first came to me as I was listening to the recordings of the first sessions: each version seemed to me to have its own personality, with subtleties so distinct from one another that I was unable to choose which I preferred," Einaudi said in a statement.
"I associated everything with walking, with the experience of following the same routes over and over, discovering new details each time. And so, in the end, I decided to thread them all together in a sort of musical labyrinth, a little like stepping inside the twists and turns of the creative process, to understand how a musical idea can develop in multiple directions, and changing once again at the moment in which it is heard."
Lauded as his masterpiece, Seven Days Walking is the latest in the esteemed composer and pianist’s amazing body of work. Einaudi is the most streamed classical artist, clocking over two billion streams. His music has graced film soundtracks such as Xavier Dolan's "Mommy" and Russell Crowe's "The Water Diviner." In 2016, Einaudi performed his “Elegy for the Arctic” while atop a glacier in the Arctic Ocean to raise awareness for climate change. Greenpeace documented the striking performance.
