Music Sales Composer Ludovico Einaudi and the ecological pressure group collaborated on the project a year ago

Greenpeace Release Behind The Scenes Video of The  'Elegy for the Arctic'

To mark the anniversary of Ludovico Einaudi’s ‘Elegy For The Arctic’, Greenpeace have released a making of video showing behind the scenes footage from Einaudi’s performance in the Arctic Ocean.

Greenpeace have released the following statement in support of the video release:

"The silence broken by the noise of the glacier as it fell off. Some notes torn from a grand piano floating in a sea of ice. Thus began the shocking video with which master Ludovico Einaudi put the soundtrack to the campaign to save the Arctic. It was recorded in Svalbard, in the Norwegian Arctic, just a year ago and managed to bring the thawing problem closer to millions of people around the world. It was not easy to do, but the result was worth it. Discover how one of the most magical moments was built in this campaign that seeks to protect one of the most threatened corners of the planet and on which we all depend."

A year on, the campaign to the protect the Arctic is still underway. Einaudi states "One year ago I played ‘Elegy for the Arctic’ in support to the campaign for a marine sanctuary in the North Pole’s international waters; one year has passed, “Save the Arctic” is still a global priority. We still need your support." You can sign the petition here - https://www.savethearctic.org.
