One of the world’s most successful composers, Ludovico Einaudi, has revealed the video for his new track ‘Night’ which is currently sitting at No.1 in iTunes Classical Charts in the UK and many countries across the globe.
His unique musical style is renowned around the world and he now returns with a new album ‘Elements’, which will be released on 16th October on the Decca label.
Recorded this year at Einaudi’s Italian home, ‘Elements’ features 12 tracks, which interweave piano, strings, percussion, guitar and electronica and it is simultaneously exhilarating and transcendent. It is inspired by nature’s elements, mathematical and scientific elements, musical forms and works of art.
Says Einaudi: “I saw new frontiers – on the edge between what I knew and what I didn’t know – that I had long wanted to explore: creation myths, the periodic table, Euclid’s geometry, Kandinsky’s writings, the matter of sound, and of colour, the stems of wild grass in a meadow, the shapes of the landscape. For months I wandered in a seemingly chaotic mix of images, thoughts and feelings. Then, gradually, everything came together in a dance, as if all the elements were parts of the same world, and myself within it.”
