Already in the nineties, he got a soundtrack, which he composed for director Michel Sordillo, Giuseppe Pichoni and Dominic Tampasco. His first albums were still writing for various musical instruments, and in 1996 he stayed with the piano forever and released his first major album, The unditSupporting melodies that were still soft at the time with slow strings breaks the calligraphy was actually enriched with strings.

Einaudi is one of the most flowing classical artists in the world, but the world of classical music does not necessarily accept him in his circles. There is criticism around the world that Aynodet is described as a safety player and a mid-level pianist, his music is unimaginative and self-repeating, but it is also indicated that his songs are highly anticipated because he plays the same chords everywhere. Some say Ludovico Einaudi is an excellent background music for work, study, and meditation, but when it comes to lead – so at concerts – it really bleeds.
It would be difficult to categorize exactly what kind of atmospheric strong music it represents, because it is definitely not classical, in any way jazz or pop, and maybe a classic or simple crossover – with critics saying Einaudi severely dilutes classical music. The composer is regularly asked in interviews with him exactly how he sees his role in this system, but based on his statements, he is unwilling to accept the classical world, and he is quite pleased with the fact that he can directly relate to his musical language as a language to many.
