Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian pianist-composer known for his work on movies and contemporary classical music with minimalist quality. I saw him play about 10 years ago at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. It was shortly after he released Divenire album where he worked with electronic music. As you may know, Hotel Cafe is a small venue with standing room only. Since then, he has gained popularity, particularly because of the movie soundtrack works, as well as collaboration with other musicians including Ballake Sissoko. When he came to UCLA last year, to play Elements, the Royce Hall was half full. But this year, the Royce Hall on October 20, 2017, was 70-80 % full and the audience is cheering for his beautiful music. Bravo to Ludovico, and many more success to you!
