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.
“…he sounded more like a member of Radiohead than a composer trained at Milan’s Conservatorio Verdi…. a thrilling high-wire balancing act, in which electronic and acoustic ended up in perfect alignment.” —London Evening STandard
