A collection of 18 original piano works which takes us through the award-winning composer's eclectic output, embracing his work with the London Philharmonic (Memoryhouse), The Blue Notebooks, Royal Ballet-commissioned Infra and some of his film scores (Departure from The Leftovers, Miss Sloane). The album is recorded using an avant-garde conception instrument thus creating a completely new sound.
Olivia Belli’s piano reduction of the acclaimed work “Mrs Dalloway, In the Garden” by Max Richter from his last album “Three Worlds, music for Woolf Works” is played on a Steinway 1899: a thrilling combination between ancient and contemporary.
It is said that in 1992 when the BBC Radio 3 broadcasted Stanze in the harp version, the phones of the radio station were buzzing with callers asking for the name of the composer. Olivia Belli presents the premiere recording of Stanze in the original piano version composed by Einaudi himself.
Performance of the most appealing melodies of the great cinema, all written by Italian or Italian-American composers, played on the piano: from Nino Rota to Ennio Morricone, from Nicola Piovani to Marco Beltrami, from Henry Mancini to Dario Marianelli, till the magic sound of Michael Giacchino who has scored the most famous Walt Disney Cartoons.
