Behind every successful composer there’s a Mom
Ludovico Maria Enrico Einaudi was born on November 23, 1955, in Piedmont, Italy. His divergent paternal and maternal roots helped him become what he is today. His paternal grandfather was President of Italy, while his father was a publisher, who worked with various famous Italian writers such as Primo Levi and Italo Calvino. Einaudi’s maternal grandfather was a composer, opera conductor and pianist, while his mother was an accomplished pianist who played the piano to young Einaudi. The die was cast for Ludovico Einaudi at a rather early age.
It should not come as a surprise that Einaudi started composing music as a teenager. He also learnt to play folk guitar. Seeing his inclination towards music, his parents sent him to the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan, where he obtained a diploma in composition. In 1982, Einaudi enrolled in an orchestration class, taught by Luciano Berio, a famous Italian composer. In a way, Berio was Einaudi’s mentor as is evident from this quote:
[Luciano] Berio did some interesting work with African vocal music and did some arrangements of Beatles songs, and he taught me that there is a sort of dignity inside music. I learnt orchestration from him and a very open way of thinking about music.
Taking lessons in orchestration from Berio helped Einaudi win a scholarship to the Tanglewood Music Festival, one of the biggest music festivals in the US and the world. Here Einaudi met with various music artists from the rest of the world. The inspiration that he drew at the Tanglewood Music Festival still shows in his music. Einaudi’s music is called minimalist music because he learnt from various artists how to make music by using the least number of instruments. His exposure to world music and artists helped him make contemporary pop, introspective, meditative and ambient music.
Einaudi in the Real World
Once his formal education was over in the 1980s, Einaudi found himself composing music for orchestras and music chambers. All the while, Einaudi kept touring, playing music before thousands in the US and Europe.
Some of Einaudi’s most important works in the 1980s were compositions for the Sul filo d'Orfeo, the Emperor, The Wild Man and Time Out, a dance-theater piece created with writer Andrea De Carlo.
Einaudi’s penchant for composing film soundtracks started in mid-1990s. He started off with two Italian films, Acquario and Da qualche parte in città. Einaudi won the Grolla d'oro (one of Italy’s oldest film awards) for best soundtrack for both. The ball started rolling for Einaudi and he has never looked back since.
