The Italian born multi-instrumentalist is a classical music powerhouse, garnering consistent international acclaim for his albums and performances, and selling out concert halls around the world.

His music is bold and modern, carrying imprints of minimalism and electronica alongside more conventional reference points such as Frederic Chopin and Hector Berlioz.

Like Philip Glass, Brian Eno and Steve Reich, Ludovico brings space to his compositions, creating living, breathing classical works for the modern age.

All the music in our playlist this week exists in a similar realm to his, from Ludovico's own work with Cecilia Chailly to tracks by British electronic stalwarts Autechre and Plaid.

You'll also find some classic Eno in there, alongside Harold Budd, Robert Turman and Yann Tiersen. A Robert Lippok remix of Ludovico's Discovery at Night also features, together with a forgotten gem from Lippok's band To Rococo Rot.

So dig in and enjoy our broadest playlist yet!
