More About the Composer
Born on November 23, 1955, in Turin, Ludovico was introduced to the piano at six by his mother, who was also a pianist. Later, thanks to his elder sister, the composer entered a new world with the most significant figures of the 1960s, including Hendrix, Dylan, and the Stones.
Luciano Berio was Einaudi’s professor at the Milan Conservatory, where he earned a degree in composition. Due to his talents, the artist was awarded a scholarship to the Tanglewood Music Festival in 1982. As a result of this experience, he became more sensitive to the influences of other musical genres, including minimalism, world music, and pop music.

Ballets such as Sul Filo d’Orfeo (1984), Time-Out (1988) and The Wild Man (1991) by the musician are considered one of the best compositions in the world. Even though the composer felt the effects of the Covid pandemic, he became more potent than ever. He composed music for the Chloé Zhao film “Nomadland,” which won six Oscars, two Golden Globes, and a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
Einaudi returned to nature with a series of eleven performances in the summer of 2021, immersed in the spectacular beauty of national parks, natural reserves, creeks, valleys, and lakes, accessible only on foot, at dawn, dusk, and under the starry sky. It was an opportunity to combine musical and natural landscape experiences, which then led him to publish his solo piano album “Underwater,” in 2022, “a metaphor for fluidity without external influence.”
