Description
Solo Piano work written in 1996 by the acclaimed Milanese composer. Einaudi writes 'The idea of Le Onde was to write something inspired by Virginia Woolf's novel The Waves. I was really intrigued by the form of the novel,which is very complex and interesting because some parts are written in italics and others in normal text. The parts in italics are like a cadence running through the book. The book is a description of what people see during oneday, starting from the light of the morning and by the end of the book night has fallen. Every time the italic chapters come back, you see a different change of light on what's happening on the shore.'

He startedwritingall the pieces for Le Onde inspired by this idea, but reached a point when he felt there was still a piece lacking from the overall picture. 'I said 'yes, it's missing Le Onde', which had in its opening the cadence of awave. The idea was that the music flowed and was developing by itself, from the opening arpeggio, like when you see a wave developing in its space, it's developing because it has to. It's perpetual motion.'
