The Coldest Piano Concert Ever…

Standard

Italian pianist and composer, Ludovico Einaudi, braved the cold and chill to perform a piano concert on a floating platform in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, near the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Norway. He was assisted by Greenpeace and together they orchestrated this endeavor to demand protection for the Artic. During the concert “Elegy for the Arctic”, I was worried that the reverberation from the piano would cause some commotion on the glaciers and at one point, it did. Whether it was related or just coincidence is hard to tell, but scary nonetheless. The backdrop is stunning and the music, though a bit long, is eerie and mysterious.
