This ‘Elegy For The Arctic’ Is A Soul-Stirring Love Song To Our Planet

Composers typically perform their masterworks in concert halls and similar venues, but the award-winning Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi chose a different spot for debuting an original piece he wrote last year at the request of Greenpeace: the Arctic Ocean.

Floating on a platform in the Arctic Ocean, Einaudi plays his soul-stirring ?Elegy for the Arctic? on a grand piano, with Norway?s towering Wahlenbergbreen Glacier slowly melting in the background. Greenpeace filmed the moving tribute, which you can watch in the above ?SuperSoul Sunday? video, providing a somber soundtrack for a majestic yet fragile ecosystem in crisis.
