This Hauntingly Beautiful Performance Is Something We All Need To See

Posted at June 24th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The acclaimed Italian painist and composer Ludovico Einaudi recently collaborated with Greenpeace to put together an awe-inspiring yet haunting performance among the icebergs in front of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway.  The video itself gives you goosebumps and is a stunning visual reminder of what’s at stake as the earth warms.

Ludovico Einaudi performed ‘Elegy for the Arctic,’ a piece he specially composed for the occasion, on a small iceberg-shaped platform as a glacier crumbled near him. You can easily spot the disbelief on Einaudi’s face as he looks around the surroundings before he starts performing. The performance was to draw world attention to the plight of the Arctic region and was timed to tie in with a meeting of the Ospar Commission (20th – 24th June), which would decide on a proposal to safeguard 10% of the Arctic Ocean.

In a news release from Greenpeace, Einaudi said “Being here has been a great experience. I could see the purity and fragility of this area with my own eyes and interpret a song I wrote to be played upon the best stage in the world. It is important that we understand the importance of the Arctic, stop the process of destruction and protect it.

Greenpeace cited it as “one of the most spectacular deteriorations caused by climate change.”

Watch the spine-chilling video performance below:
