A modern classic
With a lyrical style but always minimalist, elegant, refined and luminous, Ludovico Einaudi’s compositions continue to captivate audiences of all kinds, thanks to the different influences of his music, from the classical to the electronic and ethnic sounds.
Disciple of one of the most important avant-garde composers of the 20th century, Luciano Berio, Ludovico began his career working for prestigious cultural institutions, but he soon knew he was going to explore his own expression. With “Le Stanze” (1997) and “Le Onde” (1998), he began to attract the classical music fans. Also he had the opportunity to start working for cinema and television. In these fields, he has composed iconic soundtracks for films such as “Doctor Zhivago” (2002), “This is England” (2006) or the highly acclaimed “Intouchable” (2011). Its presence on TV and film led him to meet a new audience that keeps growing all around the planet. Meanwhile, his live shows are now much anticipated.
After exploring world music and launching his more intimate albums, in 2007 he presented his most ambitious project, “Divenire”, where all his influences come together. It has proved to be his biggest commercial success so far, with 300,000 copies sold and a tour of 80 concerts. The success didn’t stop until arriving to his last production, “Elements” (2015), where he continues exploring new frontiers. In Pedralbes there is a golden opportunity to live all his magic.
