IT was so silent, you could hear a pin drop.

Even in an arena full of thousands of people.

It was an Ludovico Einaudi show.

The world-renowned Italian composer and pianist came to Liverpool as part of his world tour for his album ‘Underwater’ – a collection of 12 newly-composed solo piano tracks.

You may not have heard of him, but you’ll recognise his music which has been used in the soundtracks of various Oscar, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning films.

He is the most-streamed classical artist of all time.

In an arena filled with a capacity of 11,000 people, it is hard to imagine how just one man with a piano can fill the room. But he did, easily.

Warrington Guardian:

Einaudi walked out and didn’t say a word for a mere 40 minutes, but he didn’t need to.

Opening with tracks from Underwater, the whole audience was captivated.

At times, not a phone was in sight which is a refreshing stage for any kind of concert or performance these days.

And then it only gets better as Einaudi’s band joins him. There is no other word to describe the quarter than exquisite.

Perhaps the regular eruptions of applauses lasting minutes at a time are telling of how truly special the performance was.

If Einaudi tours the UK again, you won’t want to miss it.
