Odd Days (Giorni Dispari) - Ludovico Einaudi
Absolutely love this piece, just found it now.
I love the danger you can hear in those strings, with the repeated semiquavers, and 3 chord progression (go to 1.30 mark). It is gorgeous.
I already loved his work, and was playing I Giorni for my grandma the other day. He has created some beautiful pieces.
I will admit it could build more possibly, the repetition could be drawn out it something bigger perhaps, but I do like the final section because it’s that gorgeous string section again that gives me chills.
I also thought the cello’s progression sounded very James Bond-esque, and with Skyfall just coming out, I had to share it.
The piece was apparently written about “one of those days” when things turn out completely different than what we expect. I think you can hear the uncertainty of what is coming with those chilling semitone movements in the cello, and again, that gorgeous string section.
