Ludovico Einaudi by Floraleda Sacchi is an album collecting 9 pieces arranged for Harp and Crystal Harp, published as USB key including 24bit Audio + book.
“For a long time, I thought to record the music by Ludovico Einaudi. I think, in this historical moment, full of tensions, his harmony is extremely important.”
“Finding a distinctive sound and a personal stylistic solution to play Ludovico Einaudi’s music is extremely complex, even if, from an instrumental point of view, his music is perfectly fitting to the Harp. The risk is to create a useless copy of his performances… I thought a lot about the project before finding a solution that justified it.”
“At the end, to enhance such a clear and delicate writing, I thought of combining the Harp with the Crystal Harp played with various techniques: beaten, rubbed with wet hands, played with a Violin bow or with the breath and blurred through granulators.”
“The result of this work are 9 tracks. All tracks have evocative atmospheres that, I think, respect the originals, while, at the same time, they paint new colors.”

“An original performance by Floraleda Sacchi on an acoustic harp of the most famous works of Ludovico Einaudi. An elegy of real, sincere feelings and an immense bouquet of emotions.”
“Оригинальное исполнение Floraleda Sacchi на акустической арфе самых известных произведений Ludovico Einaudi. Элегия настоящих, искренних чувств и необъятный букет эмоций.”
“[…] Near to the end, “Divenire” displays fascinating, meticulous playing with an incredibly melodic delivery, and “Primavera” exits the listen with a dizzying execution of unparalleled skill and unimaginable harp acrobatics.
Sure, one might think that an entire record of just harp sounds would be better suited for an EP, but in Sacchi’s capable hands, you’ll actually want to hear more of her inimitable work. Thankfully, the complicated arrangements are just as exciting on subsequent listens.”
