Critical reception[edit]

In a Time Lapse has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from music critics. According to a Classic FM review, "The Italian composer strikes gold once more with a haunting combination of dreamlike piano tunes and busy orchestral soundscapes."[5] The CD Critic put forth that In a Time Lapse is "gorgeously ambient."[4] The Independent was mesmerized by the "trancelike wave motion of tracks like 'Corale' and 'Run'", while also commenting on Einaudi's talent, saying that "there's a deeply satisfying emotional logic to his piano-based progressions that makes him as much the inheritor of Chopin and Satie as minimalists such as Glass and Reich."[6]
