Cross Current Music presents one of the globe's most prodigious and prolific musicians - Ludovico Einaudi - on Tuesday, October 10 at 8pm at The Orpheum Theatre. As part of his 'Essential Einaudi' North American Tour, the Italian pianist and composer will be joined on stage by an ensemble of five fellow musicians for an exquisite evening of music drawn from Einaudi's body of work. The program highlights the artist's chart-topping, genre-defying compositions, hailed by critics and fans alike as evocative, seductive, and hauntingly beautiful - a thrilling blend of electronic, acoustic, alt-classical, ambient, and pop.

"The Guardian spoke true when they said if you haven't heard his music, 'it's probably because you don't know it's by Ludovico Einaudi,'" explained Cross Current Music's Patrick Darby, who presents the Vancouver engagement. "His creations are simply everywhere: Topping classical charts, underscoring TV and film, integrated into advertising, and remixed by commercial music's biggest stars. And while it can be difficult to accurately describe his combination of minimalist, contemporary, and classical music in words - you only need to hear a single phrase to recognize it as one of his entirely unique creations."
