Ludovico Einaudi: Seven Days Walking Tour is coming to Jacobs Music Center's Copley Symphony Hall on Friday, June 14, 2019 at 7:30pm. Get tickets at Ticketmaster.com.
Ludovico Einaudi has played piano on an Arctic glacier, performed at huge pop music festivals, and become the most-streamed classical artist in the world, but the composer and pianist's new album may be his most ambitious project yet. On March 15, he released the first episode of a seven-part new album called Seven Days Walking (Decca Records/Universal), before embarking on a North American tour at the end of May.
With over one million streams a day, the pianist has clocked up a staggering two billion streams, making him the biggest streamed classical artist of all time. The Guardian wrote, "If you haven't heard the music of Ludovico Einaudi, then it's probably because you don't know it's by Ludovico Einaudi." His original music has appeared in countless films like Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner and Xavier Dolan's Mommy. In 2016, Greenpeace filmed him performing his "Elegy for the Arctic" while floating in the Arctic Ocean as glaciers melt around him to raise awareness about climate change.
