Ludovico Einaudi has quietly become one of the most successful musicians in the world today. His hauntingly beautiful and evocative music tops the charts all over the world. He has even achieved a Top 40 pop hit in the UK. Quite a feat for a classical artist.

Einaudi’s new album, ‘In A Time Lapse’ was recorded in a monastery near Verona, Italy. The 14 pieces that comprise the album are individual chapters that combine to dazzling effect as reflections of Einaudi’s concept of time. The album features Ludovico’s band, the string orchestra I Virtuosi Italiani and guest violinist Daniel Hope.
During the first week of release, the album debuted at the #1 spot on the iTunes classical charts in 18 countries including the USA.
Einaudi’s chart success continues with two further record-breaking achievements; 9 out of the top 10 classical singles on iTunes belong to him and he also has the highest ever chart position for a classical album in the Official Album Downloads Top 40 at #11.
