This Pianist is Playing a Grand Piano in the Middle of the Arctic Ocean

Ludovico Einaudi - published on 01/08/17

"Elegy for the Artic"

Leading up to the meeting of the OSPAR Commission, which could secure the first protected area in Arctic international waters, Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi decided to “play his part,” so to speak, in the protection of this marvellous place. The performer played on a floating platform in the middle of the Arctic ocean against the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway.
