The composer and pianist, Ludovico Einaudi, has a connection with the world around him, so he combines some classics with modern folk, and draws his inspiration from what is happening today.
As for classical music, he believes that it is facing a crisis due to the performance of wonderful pieces of classical music and its re-performance for so many years that it may now need a rest, and it must keep pace with the times, and change its official character and its relationship with its audience.
Composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi, one of the internet’s most popular classical music artists, spoke to the occasion of the presentation of his latest work “Seven Days Walking” at the Dubai Millennium Theater at Expo 2020 Dubai on Monday.
The Italian composer, known for creating scores for Oscar-winning films such as Nomadland, was joined by Federico Miccosi (violinist) and Redi Hassa (cellist).
“It’s great that I’m performing again, because, like many artists, I haven’t been able to perform live in front of the audience for a year and a half,” said Einaudi. “I started giving concerts in Italy in the summer, specifically on tour in sheltered and captivating outdoor spaces. “People had to walk to get there. It was part of my commitment to the environment, combining my view of music with the imperative to preserve and conserve our planet.”
“We also recently gave some concerts in Russia, including one of the first concerts to be held in an indoor theater (in the post-pandemic period). I’m still enjoying it, and I look forward to my concert tonight at Expo 2020 Dubai.”
On collaborating in his musical works, Ludovico Einaudi explained, “For me, collaboration is always an opportunity to grow and share my experiences with other artists, and I see the process of collaborating as a way of learning. It is a lifelong learning process. All these experiences are wonderful for me, because these exchanges With the musician Balakih Sissoko from Mali, we created the album “Diario Mali”, and with the Armenian musician Djivan Gasparian, we created the album “Eden Rock.” I also collaborated with many artists from southern Italy to produce “Project Taranta.” She will stay with me. All these moments are for the rest of my life, and these experiences are precious treasures of my life and my work.”
