On 24 June in the program “Simple Music Ensemble. Ludovico Einaudi" the world-famous works of the outstanding Italian composer will be performed for residents and guests of the Basel.
Ludovico Einaudi is one of the most famous composers of our time. His works are heard in the best halls all over the world. The creativity of the Italian musician harmoniously combines the indestructible traditions of classics, modern acoustic sound, ethnic motifs, dynamism of modern music and meditativeness. Einaudi sees himself as a guide to the world of classical music for a wide audience. Ludovico's music for films brought him more recognition. Largely due to his life-affirming melodies, the French comedy “The Intouchables” has touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Einaudi calls his own concerts “a collective meditation".
The composer has received several awards, including the prize for the “Best Original Score” for the “Sotto Falso Nome” composition at the Avignon Film Festival in 2004 and the prize for the “Best Soundtrack” at the Italian Music Awards for the "Luce Die Miei Occhi" composition.
