Ludovico Einaudi — October 15, 8 p.m., Maison symphonique — With a career stretching over 30 years and including twenty albums, Ludovico Einaudi has established himself as a bona fide legend. A virtuoso pianist and brilliant composer, he monopolizes the classical music charts and is the first classical composer in over 20 years to rank in the Top 15 in album sales, earning a devoted audience that swoons over the atmospheric beauty of his work. After his concert in a packed Maison symphonique last November 2014, the maestro returns with his new album, Elements.
