ABOUT LUDOVICO EINAUDI
Ludovico Einaudi was born in 1955 in Torino (Regione Piemonte - Italia). He is an Italian pianist and Alt-Classical musician. His father, Giulio Einaudi, was a publisher working with authors like Italo Calvino and Primo Levi, and his grandfather, Luigi Einaudi, was President of Italy between 1948 and 1955. His mother played to him on the piano as a child. Ludovico started composing his own music as a teenager, first writing by playing a folk guitar. After training at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milano in the early 1980s, Einaudi started his career as a classical composer and soon began incorporating other styles and genres, including pop, rock, world music, and folk music.
Einaudi composed the scores for a number of films and trailers, including Intouchables, I'm Still Here, Doctor Zhivago, and Acquario in 1996, for which he won the Grolla d'oro for best soundtrack. He has also released a number of solo albums of piano and orchestra, notably I Giorni in 2001, Nightbook in 2009, and In a Time Lapse in 2013.
