Many of our regular listeners will already know that we played the single from the new Ludovico Einaudi album “Elements” at the tail end of last year. We have finally got around to adding a few more tracks from this new release – making it one of our current feature albums.
Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian pianist and composer born in 1955. He trained at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan. He began his career as a classical composer, and soon began incorporating other styles and genres—including pop, rock, world music, and folk music. Einaudi has also composed the scores for a number of films and trailers, including The Intouchables and I’m Still Here, the TV miniseries Doctor Zhivago, and Acquario in 1996, for which he won the Grolla d’oro for best soundtrack. He has also released a number of solo albums of piano and orchestra.
