2/8/19 - Ludovico Einaudi performing on a raft in the Arctic

In Seattle we are experiencing a series of winter storms with snow and ice covering the city.  It's sometimes easy to forget that other parts of the world are covered in ice year-round.  In this video, Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi blends beautiful piano playing with a political message and beautiful cinematography.  Do you feel like this combination of music and politics is successful?  Can you imagine playing the piano while floating on a raft surrounded by ice?!
