More than 20 years have elapsed since the release of “I Giorni”, Ludovico Einaudi’s last piano solo album.

Jazz, after all, is a peculiar genre: drawing life from the heritage of its past great masters, of course, but at the same time constantly reinventing itself and, in this day and age, offering a veritable manifesto about the meaning of the word “change”.

Within this constant change it must make no excuses, but always look towards the future.
