Einaudi, I likey

Ludovico Einaudi

By Alice Chambers

As seen in Pegasus Pages (December 2012).

Ludovico Einaudi (b. 23 November, 1955) is an Italian pianist and neoclassical musician. He studied at the Conservatory in Milan and afterwards with Berio. His latest album was distributed in 2004 for Decca.

I personally find that Einaudi’s music represents a freedom of expression, something which is outside the borders imposed by other music genres, which allows one to really appreciate his form. On top of composing his own music, he has written pieces for the cinema. He began experimenting with cinematic styles with two films made by Michele Sordillo: ‘Da qualche parte in citt‘(1994) and ‘Acquario‘ (1996). In response to these, he was presented with the Grollo Dioro for best soundtrack. However, it is his album ‘Le Onde‘ that was really the start of his successful profession as a soloist. Interestingly, it was inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel ‘The Waves‘, in which the waves represent life itself. His beautiful pieces are very repetitive in their structure and this is what makes them so wonderful to listen to. He said of his style, “I needed to check out personally the meaning of what I was doing, find a direct channel of communication with the public, be at the centre of the magic and emotion that can be created only during a live performance.” It is obvious that he has achieved his goal.
