Einaudi – the waves…

Le Onde (Italian: The Waves) – incredible music by the minimalist Italian composer & pianist Ludovico Einaudi. Based on the novel The Waves by the British writer Virginia Woolf. It reads “if it were a story, it would be set on the sea-front of a long beach. A beach without a beginning & without an end. The story of a man who walks along this shore, perhaps never meets anyone. His gaze lingers occasionally to look at some object or fragment brought from the sea. The footprints of a crab or a solitary seagull. I always take the sand, the sky, some clouds, the sea. Only the waves change – always the same, yet different. Smaller. Larger. Shorter. Longer.”
