Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian pianist and composer who embraces the meditative qualities that are present in the minimalism of contemporary pop. Einaudi is able to seamlessly convey the pure emotion in each instrument that plays a role to help complete each musical masterpiece. Einaudi started his career as a classical composer and soon began incorporating other styles and genres, including pop, rock, world music, and folk music.

 

Einaudi was born in November 1955 in Turin, Italy. When he was a child, he would always listen to his mother play on the piano and in time, he become intrigued with the ambiance in different musical notes. As a teenager, he started composing his own music by writing his first song while playing a folk guitar. It was not long before he found the prodigious influences of the piano, synthesizer and keyboard to be something he could never part with.

 

 

Einaudi composed the scores for a number of films and trailers, including The Intouchables, I’m Still Here, Doctor Zhivago, and Acquario in 1996, for which he won the Grolla d’oro for best soundtrack. He has also released a number of solo albums of piano and orchestra, notably I Giorni in 2001, Nightbook in 2009, and In a Time Lapse in 2013.

 

In 2006, Divenire, is a collaboration of piano and orchestra by Einaudi. The album also includes his critically acclaimed track “Primavera.” It was recorded by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra with Einaudi, as the piano master. Shortly after its release, Einaudi went on tour to various places in the UK, playing both the music on Divenire and orchestral arrangements of his other works. The album topped the iTunes classical chart in 2006. In October 2009, Nightbook was released. The album saw Einaudi take a new direction with his music as he incorporated synthesized sounds alongside his solo piano playing. His newest album, In a Time Lapse, was released on January 21, 2013.
