This performance marks the Celebrity Series debut for Ludovico Einaudi.
Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi’s hauntingly beautiful and evocative music defies categorization; it’s a thrilling blend of electronic and acoustic, alt-classical, ambient, and pop. He draws from his rock ‘n’ roll upbringing as well as from classical minimalist masters like Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Einaudi has produced 17 albums and composed scores for a plethora of major films including Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and the Oscar-winning film Black Swan. Not easily defined, his music is already tantalizingly, bewitchingly familiar.
His luminous, emotive, effortlessly lyrical, and supremely refined music has attracted an ever-growing audience over the last two decades whose diversity and devotion are without parallel. He has released a series of chart-topping albums, sells out the most prestigious concert halls worldwide, composed a string of award-winning film scores, and has become an internet phenomenon. With a unique musical alchemy that draws on elements of classical, rock, electronica and world music, he has rendered traditional ideas of genre and audience divide obsolete to become not only one of the best-known composers in the world today but almost certainly the best-loved too.
Program to be announced from the stage.
