On first hearing the beautiful ‘Le Onde’ by Ludovico Einaudi in 2009 I was captivated. This piece touched me deeply, and playing his music has since become a vital part of my life.
The calming influence of many of Einaudi’s works creates for me a sanctuary in which the stresses of daily life have no place. His music would undoubtedly have inspired and uplifted me during the dark months of my chemotherapy, and I regret that it was unknown to me at that time.
With this in mind, I humbly present my selected pieces from Einaudi’s past albums as a compilation intended to offer the listener a restful hour of peace, calm and relaxation.
This album is dedicated to the memory of the following people I dearly loved who sadly lost the battle:
My grandmother, Lydia
Precious friends, Bob and Keith.
Since October 2010, thanks to everyone who has attended my piano recitals of the music of Ludovico Einaudi and/or purchased my CD, I have been able to donate funds to the following UK cancer charities:
Marie Curie Cancer Care
Cancer Research UK
Children With Cancer UK
Breakthrough Breast Cancer
The Lymphoma Association
Teenage Cancer Trust UK
Breast Cancer Now
As always I give my sincere and heartfelt thanks to Ludovico Einaudi himself, who has made this possible by not only giving us his beautiful music, now loved by millions of people the world over, but also by supporting this CD with his personal statement for the album cover:
“It is very nice when music can help other people, and I wish all the best to Christine Rayner’s beautiful project.”
