Ludovico Einaudi: Classical Brilliance Echoing in the Sydney Opera House

Ludovico Einaudi

Italian maestro Ludovico Einaudi, renowned globally for his signature blend of neo-classical, pop, ambient, and experimental music, is set to grace the stage of the Sydney Opera House from 2 – 5 February. The Concert Hall, now boasting revitalised sonic surroundings, will hear the exquisite notes of Einaudi’s piano, a decade after he made his Australian debut on the same stage.

Audiences can expect an immersive experience as Einaudi, the world’s most streamed classical music artist, presents music from his 2022 album, ‘Underwater’, alongside timeless classics from his extensive 40-year career. The performances will feature Einaudi’s distinguished blend of piano, violin, viola, cello, electronics, and percussion, weaving a rich tapestry of sound that is an exploration of genre and form.

The composer’s affinity with the Sydney Opera House is palpable, with Einaudi stating, “It is my great pleasure to return to the Sydney Opera House for four concerts. It is one of my favourite iconic places where I love to perform. Its last passionate and warm audience response still resonates in my heart.”

Einaudi’s extraordinary career, spanning multi-million-selling albums; critically acclaimed film and television scores including the Oscar and Golden Globe-winning films, The Intouchables, Nomadland and The Father; and a haunting iceberg performance in the Arctic Ocean for Greenpeace, testifies to his versatility as a composer. His recent success on TikTok, where his 2013 track ‘Experience’ gained over 15 billion views and inspired 7 million video creations, has introduced a new generation to his moving compositions.

Sydney Opera House Head of Contemporary Music, Ben Marshall, encapsulates the anticipation surrounding Einaudi’s return, “It is always a major occasion and privilege to welcome Ludovico Einaudi to the Sydney Opera House, especially after a four-year absence… Presenting Einaudi’s Australian debut in 2013 was a personal joy for me, and it remains thrilling to witness his constant ascent leading to these four consecutive summer nights of unmistakable compositional and performative majesty.”

Einaudi’s return in 2024, four years since his last sold-out visit, is eagerly awaited. With new music from ‘Underwater’ and his inspirational catalogue of spine-tingling hits, audiences will once again have the opportunity to be utterly transported by the maestro’s immense talents.
