Italian composer, Ludovico Einaudi, performs on the piano against stunning backdrop of a surging Arctic glacier.

Ludovico Einaudi performed a breathtakingly haunting piece, ‘Elegy for the Arctic’ to highlight the destruction of ice on the pole due to climate change. With a grand piano on a floating platform in front of a glacier, Einaudi played an original piece composed for the cause.

The acclaimed composer has turned into music the voices of the eight million people that asks for Arctic protection. With this action, Greenpeace is urging the OSPAR Commission not to miss the opportunity to protect international Arctic waters under its mandate at this week’s meeting in Tenerife.
