When I was at university I discovered the perfect study music – Ludovico Einaudi’s album Una Mattina. Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian pianist and composer born in 1955 in Turin, Italy. Trained at the Conservatorio Verdi in Milan, Einaudi began his career as a classical composer, later incorporating other styles and genres such as pop, rock, folk, and world music.
Asked about Una Mattina, Einaudi said “If someone asked me about this album, I would say it is a collection of songs linked together by a story. But unlike my other albums, it doesn’t belong to a time in the past. It speaks about me now, my life, the things around me.”
Einaudi has composed the scores for a number of films and television productions, including This Is England, The Intouchables, I’m Still Here, the TV miniseries Doctor Zhivago, and Acquario (1996), for which he won the Grolla d’oro. His music was used as the score for the Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning films Nomadland and The Father.
