Ludovico Einaudi - Nightbook

Ponderosa Music & Art - September 2009

“A night-time landscape. A garden faintly visible under the dull glow of the night sky. A few stars dotting the darkness above, shadows of the trees all around. Light shining from a window behind me. What I can see is familiar, but it seems alien at the same time. It’s like a dream—anything may happen.”This is how Ludovico Einaudi describes his latest work Nightbook, as something transitional between light and darkness, between the known and the unknown. This new album comes three years after the international success of the previous work, Divenire [To Become]. The night is a door that allows us to steal into the universe of desire, of dreams and mystery. “Nightbook is a journey, and each track is like a chapter in a story or the facets of a prism, a way of delving into the more oneiric, deeper side to ourselves,” says Einaudi. “The music opens up gateways to hidden worlds, enabling the listener to enter into contact with their deepest emotions.” The album was gradually composed while Einaudi was on tour around the world, during which he kept jotting down his thoughts and ideas in a notebook, recording them in “musical sketches” that evolved into the groundwork of the present project.
