Overview

Classical superstar Ludovico Einaudi is the most streamed alt-classical artist in the world. As part of his ‘Essential Einaudi’ North American Tour, the Italian pianist and composer will be joined on stage by an ensemble of five fellow musicians for an exquisite evening of music drawn from Einaudi’s body of work. The program highlights the artist’s chart-topping, genre-defying compositions, hailed by critics and fans alike as evocative, seductive, and hauntingly beautiful – a thrilling blend of electronic, acoustic, alt-classical, ambient, and pop.

Ludovico Einaudi’s latest album - 2015’s Elements - topped classical charts in 42 countries across the globe. In the United Kingdom it soared into the nation’s mainstream album chart at #12 - the first time in over a generation that a classical artist achieved such heights - surpassing releases by pop stars James Bay and Taylor Swift.

His compositions have formed the soundtrack of a multitude of film and TV productions, including This is England and The Intouchables, working with a diverse range of directors from acclaimed Canadian Xavier Dolan to Oscar winner Clint Eastwood. In his own concert appearances, Einaudi was the first classical act to play the iTunes Festival on a line-up that included pop diva Lady Gaga and rapper Kendrick Lamar.

“His creations are simply everywhere: Topping classical charts, underscoring TV and film, integrated into advertising, and remixed by commercial music’s biggest stars. And while it can be difficult to accurately describe his combination of minimalist, contemporary, and classical music in words – you only need to hear a single phrase to recognize it as one of his entirely unique creations.” - Patrick Darby
