Bristol Museum and Art Gallery will be awash with hundreds of candles on April 5, as a Candlelight tribute to Ludovico Einaudi comes to town. A talented pianist will take to the keys as the sun sets on Bristol, and play many of Einaudi’s legendary compositions by candlelight, as darkness falls. Pretty magical-sounding, huh?
As the pianist takes to the atmospherically lit stage, you’ll hear 60 minutes of classical Einaudi masterpieces. From the simplicity of Nuvole Bianche to the mournful notes of I Giorni, take a musical journey at this breathtaking tribute to an award-winning composer.
Ludovico Einaudi has redefined the landscape of composing music for the piano. He was taught by the Italian composer Luciano Berio at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan. The budding composer learned to think very openly about music and has since been heavily influenced by pop music. From a classical to an innovative composer, Einaudi has created film scores for the likes of Nomadland and The Father.
Where better to experience elegant piano performances than in the presence of the art, nature, and history collections at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery? You can expect to be spellbound by the sounds of Le Onde, Primavera, Divenire, and many more Einaudi masterpieces.
After having enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris—Candlelight brings its unique experience to Bristol to pay tribute to one of the greatest Italian composers of all time.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
