An internationally renowned pianist used an appropriate stage to draw attention to global climate change.

Ludovico Einaudi performed his piece "Elegy For the Arctic" on a floating platform on the Arctic Ocean.

The Italian pianist teamed up with Greenpeace to brave sub-zero degree temperatures to perform against the backdrop of a melting glacier.

Einaudi also sent an urgent message to world leaders: "What happens here in the Arctic happens, is related to the rest of the world."

The video was released by Greenpeace on the eve of the week-long Ospar Commission Meetings. Ospar is an institution composed of 15 governments whose mission is to protect the north-east Atlantic's marine waters.
