‘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, was Einaudi’s 14th studio album and was released in March 2019.

‘Seven Days Walking: Day Two’ followed a month later. Each ‘day’ is then released a month apart, leading up to ‘Day Seven’ which released autumn 2019 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 focused 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.
