At the request of Greenpeace, award-winning Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi created an original masterwork titled "Elegy for the Arctic." He performed the piece while floating on a platform in the Arctic Ocean, with the towering Wahlenbergbreen Glacier (in Svalbard, Norway) slowly melting in the background.

In this Super Soul Short, Einaudi's soul-stirring composition provides a somber soundtrack for a majestic yet fragile ecosystem in crisis.
