PREVIEW: Ludovico Einaudi at Brighton Dome, 11-12/3/16

Ludovico Einaudi returns to Brighton for two dates at The Dome in March in support of his latest album ‘Elements’, which was released last October. Although you may not be familiar with his name there is a good chance that you will be aware of his music as he has found mainstream success providing music for adverts and soundtracks to television and film. This included being BAFTA-nominated for his score of This is England ’86 and him continuing to work on the subsequent series.

His sound is quite difficult to define as terms such as alt or neo classical, minimalist and contemporary are banded about, which may not carry much meaning. At the heart of his music, it is just him and a piano that take you on a journey and make you feel a variety of different emotions. Although he trained in and began composing traditional music he moved on to creating more contemporary pieces when he began his soundtrack work as well as incorporating more electronic sounds in his own work as his career went on.

I defy anyone in attendance at The Dome to listen to songs such as I Giorni (from ‘I Giorni’) and Experience (from ‘In a Time Lapse’) and not feel anything and get lost in his ethereal sounds.

Ludovico Einaudi performs at Brighton Dome on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th March.
