Ludovico einaudi - in a time laps (reimagined)

Ludovico Einaudi 's minimalist, shimmering compositions have taken the world by storm and seduced the cinema. His work is exciting, seductive, elegant, meditative and often introspective. And for good reason: it moves as much as it captivates.

It's no coincidence that the music of this Italian pianist-composer fascinates filmmakers the world over; the evocative power and attraction ofEinaudi 's instrumentals is immediate and magnetic. A veritable rite of initiation, with tunes that are as moving as they are invigorating, it's no surprise that it quickly became an international success.

From Aprile (1998) to The Father (2020), via the French hits Intouchables (2011) and Samba (2014) and the Oscar-winning Nomadland (2020), Ludovico Einaudi 's gentle melodic epics are unrivalled in their ability to suggest a host of emotions, from the most melancholy to the most exalted.
