If you had the chance to be there, you couldn’t forget that moment in which you actually lost your breath.
A piano in the middle of the stage, the soft light of candles, the moon reflected on the slightly wavy waters of Garda Lake. And, of course, the music.
Born in Turin, Italy, Einaudi’s mother played to him on the piano as a child. He began his musical training at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan, gaining a diploma in composition. Later, he studied with Luciano Berio. In 1982, he gained a scholarship to the Tanglewood Music Festival. He currently resides on a vineyard in the Italian region of Piedmont.
His phenomenal CD sales and ability to sell out major concert halls worldwide are confirmation that Einaudi is one of classical music‘s success stories of recent years. After studying at the Conservatory in Milan, and subsequently with Berio, he spent several years composing in traditional forms. In the mid-1980s he began to search for a more personal expression in a series of works for dance and multimedia, and later for piano. His music is ambient, meditative and often introspective, drawing on minimalism, world music, and contemporary pop. He has made a significant impact in the film world, with four international awards to his name.
