Einaudi plays piano on an iceberg as an Arctic glacier crumbles around him

As part of their campaign to save the Arctic, Greenpeace persuaded Italian composer and Pianist Ludovico Einaudi to play on a specially built "iceberg" within 100m of a crumbling glacier in June 2016, producing a hauntingly beautiful and jarring performance.

In the video, Einaudi is seen performing Elegy for the Arctic in the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings of Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway. As Einaudi plays one descending scale, huge chunks of ice crumbles from the glacier.

Ludovico Einaudi returns to the UK with his new project Seven Days Walking performing at Symphony Hall on Saturday 12 October.
