On October 1, 2021, at the unique multimedia platform located on the territory of the Moscow Zoo, the ZooDepo Mystic Orchestra will play Ludovico Einaudi’s album Nightbook. This concert can be called mystical, because the orchestra members always perform in masks. Remaining incognito, the musicians do not distract the audience with their individuality, thereby allowing them to fully immerse themselves in her majesty’s music.
Ludovico Einaudi is an Italian composer and pianist. He studied at the Milan Conservatory named after Giuseppe Verdi, as well as with the composer Luciano Berio. He began his career as a classical composer and soon began to develop in other styles, including pop and rock music, ethnic and folk. Einaudi’s love for the ambient style is known. His music is often meditative and introspective, drawing on minimalism and contemporary pop music.
Nightbook is an album created by Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi and released in 2009. With this album, Einaudi took a new direction in his music by incorporating synthesized sounds along with solo piano playing. The new approach can be seen on tracks like "Nightbook" and "Lady Labyrinth", which use a percussion element along with the piano as a driving force throughout the song. In Italy, the album went gold with over 35,000 copies sold.
Night landscape. A garden, faintly visible under the dim glow of the night sky. A few stars dotting the darkness overhead, the shadows of the trees all around. Light pours in from the window behind me. What I see is familiar to me, but at the same time it seems alien. It’s like a dream — anything can happen.
The title track "Nightbook" was featured in a TV commercial for the Channel 4 drama "Any Human Heart". "Lady Labyrinth" is often used as background music on Top Gear specials.
