Ludovico Einaudi has signed a deal to commit his music publishing future to Music Sales Group
The streaming-friendly Italian composer and pianist has agreed a new, exclusive long-term publishing contract with Chester Music Limited, part of the Music Sales Group.
Einaudi said: “Music Sales is like a big beautiful family. In the last years we have done so many amazing projects together and I am very proud to continue this fantastic adventure with them.”
Einaudi is signed to Decca for recordings. He is currently on a world tour of his septet of monthly releases, Seven Days Walking. The first instalment peaked at No.31 and has sales of 10,501 copies (4,014 from streams), according to the Official Charts Company.
Chris Butler (pictured with Einaudi), director of global rights development at Music Sales, said: “Working with Ludovico over a sustained period has been a revelation and it is a privilege to publish the music of such a creative composer, artist and performer. Each project scales new heights of innovation and there is so much more to come as we continue the partnership. Ludovico has recently been acknowledged as the most streamed classical artist of all time, quite aside from his pre-eminence as a live performer, and his enduring popularity in the synchronisation market.”
