Ludovico Einaudi & Elegy for the Arctic

The Arctic ice is melting slowly but inexorably due to the effects of climate change and the overexploitation caused by human action. In 2016, Greenpeace wanted to raise public awareness about the alarming situation through the beauty and the stateliness of Elegy for the Arctic, an unpublished piece of classic music composed by the Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi. Alone with his piano on the Wahlenbergbreen glacier, in the Svalbard islands (Norway), Einaudi seems to apologise on behalf of the human species for the suffering of the environment that is breaking into pieces. The images are overwhelmingly poetic, and the music leaves one utterly speechless.
