Einaudi readies new album

Having toured the world with the wildly successful Nightbook record, Einaudi now switches focuses to some new (and old) recordings.

Einaudi found a few moments in between sessions for his new album, The Essential Einaudi, to talk about new songs that will be appearing on it, as well as the process of re-interpreting some of his most famous numbers.
