Alt-classical composer/pianist Ludovico Einaudi – whose unique musical style is renowned around the world – returns with a brand new album 'Elements,'to be released on the Decca label.
Einaudi has quietly become one of the most successful musicians on the planet. His hauntingly beautiful and evocative music tops the classical charts worldwide and he has sold over 1.5 million records.
'Elements' was recorded this year at his studio in the Italian countryside. It is inspired by the world around him: nature's elements (earth, water, air, and fire), mathematical and scientific elements, musical forms and works of arts including those by Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Gustav Klimt. This album brings these seemingly disparate elements together into one concept. Einaudi created the album's cover artwork himself – drawing a variety of different symbols and illustrations, which combine to stunning effect.
His music has been described as minimalist, alt-classical, ambient and contemporary, but it defies easy classification. He sums it up best: "There is something in it that comes from classical, but I have influences from different music I have experienced in my life, from African music to folk and rock."
This latest album brings together a musical alchemy that draws on elements of electronicam, world, rock and classical music – reflecting Einaudi's unique position on the international music scene.
