World renowned Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi has performed a historic concert, set on a floating platform in the Arctic Ocean.
The innovative performance in collaboration with Greenpeace, Einaudi added his voice to those of eight million people from across the world demanding protection for the Arctic waters, from threats like oil drilling and destructive fishing.
Against the icy backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway, einaudi has played one of his own compositions ‘elegy for the arctic’ for the first time.
A monumental early retreat of sea ice as a result of climate change allowed for the construction of an artificial iceberg made from more than 300 triangles of wood, on which a grand piano sits.
