[ Decca / 2 CD ]
Release Date: Friday 10 January 2020
Ludovico Einaudi is the world's most popular composer, and the source of hundreds of instantly familiar themes used in films, TV, advertising and synch activity (recent credits include American Airlines, This Is England '86 and Black Swan). His music is playing somewhere in the world and being heard by a listener 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. He is also the only classical artist who sells the most sheet music in the UK, coming a close 3rd behind Adele and Mumford and Sons in total sheet music sales. Einaudi sells out massive tours across Europe every year, and "Islands" is the first time that all of his best known material will appear on one destination purchase collection, targeted to reach as wide an audience as possible.
"Islands' ability to stir up emotions with just a few chords shows that his works are far from easy listening fodder." Allmusic
