New York, NY -- “Modern-day classical superstar” (Vanity Fair) Ludovico Einaudi is returning to North America for a slew of tour dates supporting his latest album, Underwater, Einaudi’s first solo piano album in 20 years, which debuted at the top of Billboard’s classical music charts when it was released in January on Decca.
Joined by longtime musical collaborators Francesco Arcuri (percussion), Redi Hasa (cello), and Federico Mecozzi (violin), Einaudi will travel through Canada, the US, and Mexico, playing pieces from Underwater and favorites from his oeuvre.
The tour will also include special solo performances in Oakland, New York and Montreal, as part of the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Einaudi, the most streamed classical artist of all time, made his highly anticipated return to live performances earlier this year with a sold-out European tour, packing venues in major cities, including Berlin’s 20,000-seat Waldbühne.
