Watch: Popular Pianist plays mind-soothing music amidst calving glacier to save Artic

Ludovico Einaudi is best known for collaborating with esteemed filmmakers like Clint Eastwood, Darren Aronofsky, and Xavier Dolan, Ludovico Einaudi.

The renowned Pianist is now on a mission to add a few more notes to raising the awareness for the preservation of the Arctic glaciers.

In association with Greenpeace, Einaudi performed the musical piece known as the “Elegy for the Arctic” in the Arctic.

A wooden stage was created to carry the musician and his piano in the chilling waters at Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway.

Einaudi’s melancholic tune had the most fitting background as the icebergs could be heard crumbling and falling into the ocean.

Climate change over the recent years have been a major concern for people all across the world as the polar icecaps have started melting at an exponential rate. This is Einaudi’s attempt to bring some awareness to the problem knocking on the door.
