World-Revowned Pianist Ludovico Einaudi Plays in the Arctic Ocean for Greenpeace

There is a Latin legal term which is, res ipsa loquitur.  It means, "The thing speaks for itself."  This is why our recounting of this phenomenal event is not a review.  It simply does not require a review.

World-Revowned Pianist Ludovico Einaudi Plays in the Arctic Ocean for Greenpeace
What is the event?  Pianist Ludovico Einaudi was asked by Greenpeace to compose and perform a piece (In June of this year), to raise recognition and to surely to acquire funds for the receding Wahlenbergreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway. 

Take this acknowledged musician, have him float amongst melting ice caps in the Arctic Ocean.  Have him play something that he wrote in recognition of the melting.  Have the man sitting atop the floating matter for forty-hours. 

Have him start to droop a little, out of exhaustion.  See something spiritual lift his head and watch the elegy play out with nature as his back-up symphony.  Watch the pain on his face. 

A review?  No.  Sheer display of compassion, genius and a genuine concern for our environment?  Yes.

Elegy for the Arctic.
