Editors’ Notes The reassuring calm that descends on Day 3 of Ludovico Einaudi’s mountain walks continues to Day 4. “Low Mist,” whispering, gently pulsing, throws off its last vestiges of anxiety, while the bite of the “Cold Wind” has been blunted. The inner peace for which Einaudi searches is surely within reach. But life is never that simple. The wind, although softer, still whistles plaintively through the trees in “Matches,” while Einaudi’s “View From the Other Side” has an air of nostalgia. The subtlety of Seven Days Walking is its complexity: Einaudi’s continually shifting musical perspectives and emotional openness are both fascinating and heartwarming.
