One of the world's most respected and famous pianists, Ludovico Einaudi is returning to Budapest for the first time since giving a pair of sold-out concerts at Müpa Budapest in 2017 to amaze the Hungarian audience once again with a show that surpasses categorisations of musical style. Born in Turin in 1955 and also popular as a composer of film scores, this artist who creates unique sounds out of ingredients ranging from classical music to avant-garde, pop and world music influences has recorded a great deal of exciting work since his last visit here.
Einaudi has been creating concert pieces and works for the stage, as well as releasing records, since the 1980s. He helps anchor the peaceful, relaxing and meditative post-minimalist school within the category of modern classical popular music by allowing many other influences into his own. He boldly experiments with Mande music from Mali, the Armenian instrument known as the duduk, and the southern Italian genre of tarantella. The cinematic influences are clear: his popularity has been greatly ...increased by his soundtrack for 2011's The Intouchables, along with those of many other films. He made his name in the mid-2000s with the albums Una Mattina (2004) and Divenire (2006) before nicely expanding his own personal world in the 2010s (with 2013's In a Time Lapse and 2015's Elements). The period since his Budapest debut has been a very active one for him, yielding, for example, the seven-disc Seven Days Walking project, which offers seven variations on a few key themes. In 2019, he wrote the music for a play directed by Bob Wilson, along with an opera set to a libretto by Colm Tóibín and the incidental music for the celebrated film Nomadland. His latest album, 2022's Underwater (whose music will be featured at his Müpa Budapest concert) was inspired by his 2021 open-air concerts, surrounded by silence and tranquillity: we can count on an outpouring of emotions during his second guest performance in Budapest.
