Solo piano music, composed and performed by Ludovico Einaudi, in a romantic/minimalistic style. "The inspiration for Ludovico Einaudi's I Giorni was a 12th-century folk song from Mali about a hippopotamus who was cherished by the residents of a nearby village but killed by a hunter. 'The song,' writes Einaudi in his succinct liner note, 'is sung as a lament for the death of a king or a great person or for the loss of a loved one.' The result is a tender & introspective set of fourteen piano pieces. This work was written after hearing the kora playing o f Toumani Diabate while traveling in Mali."
