Ludovico Einaudi was born in Turin, Italy, and trained as a classical composer and pianist at the Milan Conservatorio before embarking on a career that has seen him achieve spectacular international success across two decades. He has released a series of chart-topping albums with sales exceeding 750,000 copies, sold-out a succession of globe-trotting tours that visit the world’s most prestigious concert halls and composed a string of award-winning Film & TV scores. His work is instantly recognisable, transcends traditional boundaries between classical, rock and other musics and is notable both for the enormous scale and diversity of its audience, and the unique devotion it inspires, propelling him to the top of audience polls worldwide and creating an internet phenomenon. Among the many honours Ludovico has received in recognition of his work is the OMRI (Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana), the senior order of Knighthood bestowed by the Italian Republic.
