"I think it's Cezanne that was painting the same mountain for 20 years, and every time he was painting the mountain there was a different light. It's beautiful to watch the different versions of the same view." Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi offers his own spin on a set of variations with an ambitious project representing each day of the week. It's called Seven Days Walking.

Ludovico grew up in Turin, Italy. He remembers vividly soaking up the music that his mother would play at the piano. "At a certain point I remember I started to listen to this piano that was around me all the time, like a fireplace. I remember I was connecting with my emotions through the sound of the piano and my mother. When I was younger, I was studying classical music at the same time I was exposed to the music of the '60s and '70s. I remember my mother was playing classical music, but at the same time she introduced me to "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones. I also grew up with my older sister listening to Bob Dylan and The Beatles."
