Tonight, at 8pm CET, the first ever live stream of a Yellow Lounge performance will be broadcast to the Deutsche Grammophon website. Featuring Daniel Hope (violin) and Ludovico Einaudi (piano), the evening will take place at the Stockholm club O-Baren Sturehof.

The set list will feature pieces from Daniel Hope’s upcoming album Spheres, to be released on February 15th on Deutsche Grammophon; a curated anthology of music exploring the concept of “musica universalis”: the idea that planetary movement creates sound.

The first e-single from the album, I Giorni, by Ludovico Einaudi, was released in mid-December 2012 and will be performed tonight by Daniel Hope, a string ensemble and Ludovico Einaudi himself, alongside several other tracks from Spheres.

To view the live stream, from 8pm CET tonight, please click here.
