Not sure if you caught up with Russell Crowe on Jimmy Fallon the other night? It was broadcast in Australia this evening on ABC2. If you want to see Russell’s cracking version of Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues try YouTube, here. But I digress. He also mentioned an Italian classical composition that he’s been listening to with The Water Diviner front of mind. The work he was talking about is coincidentally called “Divenire”, by Ludovico Einaudi.  Nothing to do with divining – in Italian it means something approximating ‘becoming’. Find it on YouTube here.

If you’re interested in Einaudi’s work, he played and recorded a concert live from his home in January last year on his YouTube channel with some of the most hauntingly beautiful classical tracks I’ve heard. Tracks that just scream film.
