Ludovico Einaudi was "honoured" to have his music used in 'Black Swan'.

The Italian contemporary pianist and composer's music has appeared in a number of different adverts and films, but he was especially pleased for his track 'Eros' to be used in the trailer for the Darren Aronofosky movie about a conflicted ballerina, starring Natalie Portman.

He said: "Being invited to score for 'Black Swan' for was a real honour. To have my work form part of such an amazing film is something I am very proud of. Natalie's performance was exquisite."

The composer - who's work has also appeared in movies 'This Is England' and 'I'm Still Here', and has also seen him take on a pop edge, covering Bruno Mars' 'Grenade' - was also blown away by the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London at the end of July, which was directed by 'Slumdog Millionaire' filmmaker Danny Boyle.

He added: "The London Olympic Opening Ceremony was excellent. The mixture of old and new, of classic and contemporary was a beautiful reflection of Great Britain. Danny Boyle is a genius."

Ludovico, 56, has recently released a track, 'Monday', which is available for free download from
