If one man embodies the kaleidoscopic new musical world of the ‘user-generated’ age, it is Ludovico Einaudi. Topping audience polls from the classical to pop to the avant-garde, Einaudi has not only become one of Europe’s most popular composers, but has rendered traditional ideas of musical genre and audience divide obsolete.
Einaudi’s music is ambient, meditative and often introspective. His sweeping compositions are deeply touching, and draw inspiration from classical and international music, minimalism, and contemporary pop, but always with the piano at the heart of the sound.
