The Teatro Grande will reopen on 23 rd July with an exceptional artist, Ludovico Einaudi, performing in
Pompeii for the first time. ‘Ludovico Einaudi elements’ is the title of the concert. Together with the Turin
composer on piano, there will be Federico Mecozzi on violin, Redi Hasa playing cello, Alberto Fabris on bass
guitar and live electronics, Riccardo Laganà on percussion and Francesco Arcuri on guitar..


The album ‘Elements’ was released on 16 th October 2015.It includes 12 pieces featuring various instruments, the piano, strings, percussion, guitar and electronics. Like Einaudi’s previous albums, ‘Elements’ is a suite, which means that each piece is firmly connected to the others. It has a rich and multi-layered sound, and the different elements are combined in a fresh and natural way, merging acoustic, electrical and electronic sounds. The album was recorded over three months, between March and June, in the studio of Einaudi's country house on the Langhe hills; “A unique experience, accompanied by the pulsating rhythm of spring in its explosion.' Discussing his latest work, the composer said, “If it weren’t music, it would be a map of thoughts, sometimes clear, sometimes one on top of the other, dots, lines, shapes, fragments of an internal discourse that never stops.
