Ludovico Einaudi returns to Sydney with his immersive new masterpiece Seven Days Walking – a seven-disc magnum opus released over the course of seven months this year, as well as favourites from his 30-year career, accompanied by mesmerising visuals and a live band.

The world’s most-streamed classical musician was inspired by winter walks in the Alps near his Italian home. Seven Days Walking is an ambitious new project that is the first of its kind. Each album or ‘day’ in the series, focuses on a selection of core themes and motifs that recur and mutate in complex and subtle variations.

Einaudi says “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. 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.”

Performing in Sydney has a special significance for Einaudi as his grandfather Waldo Aldrovandi, also a pianist and composer, lived and worked in Australia from the mid-1930s after fleeing Mussolini’s fascist rule shortly before World War Two.
