Born in Turin, Italy he trained as a classical composer and pianist. He became one of the most influential and popular composers in UK, Europe and beyond. Einaudi’s genre-defying music has been described as minimalist, alt-classical, ambient and contemporaryLuminous, emotive and always supremely refined, Ludovico Einaudi’s performances have attracted an ever growing audience over the last two decades whose diversity and devotion are without parallel.
In addition to creating hauntingly and evocative music which top the charts, he has composed a host of outstanding film scores, Black Swan, Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and box-office record breaker The Intouchables. Many of Einadi’s award-winning scores became successful albums in their own right, Doctor Zhivago (2002) Shane Meadows’ highly acclaimed film This Is England ( 2006) and its television sequel This Is England ’86 (2010) which brought him a BAFTA nomination.
Einaudi became a floating platform in June this year when he performed a solo piano original work Elegy for the Arctic against the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier on the Arctic Ocean.
The concert was an attempt to draw attention to the plight of the region. http://bit.ly/EinaudiChannel
