On the 20 November, the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo is to host a very special concert by none other than the famous Italian pianist: Ludovico Einaudi
Thanks to his musically-inclined mother, Einaudi was introduced to music and started playing the piano at a very early age. Having trained at the Milan Conservatory, he went on to hone his craft alongside electroacoustic pioneer Luciano Berio.
His delicate, simple compositions are especially captivating on the big screen. They are flawless in their portrayal of emotions, including in feature-lengths films such as Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano’s “The Intouchables”, Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy”, and even “Listen to Me Marlon”, a biographical documentary looking back at the life of Marlon Brando. Several of his works have also been used in adverts for brands such as Lancôme, Sony and Orange.
An artist with a conscience, last June saw Einaudi perform “Elegy for the Arctic” on a floating platform in the Arctic Ocean in support of Greenpeace’s “Save the Arctic” campaign.
Two years after the success of In a Time Lapse, Einaudi has signed a new international contract with Decca Records and unveiled his most ambitious musical project to date.
“Seven Days Walking” is a collection of seven musical episodes, which will be released over a period of seven consecutive months. The first is “Seven Days Walking: Day One”. “Seven Days Walking: Day Two” will follow a month later. One “day” will appear online every month, all the way to “Day Seven”.
