Ludovico Einaudi: Le Onde - The Waves

Ludovico Einaudi wrote Le Onde (The Waves) in 1996. It is a very slow smooth music, which makes you look truly deeply into your heart, your soul, the world around you, and beyond.

When you know that a human being that walks this Earth, breaths this air was able to create art of such beauty, it makes you truly thankful to realise that angels do walk on Earth. You realise the beauty of our fragile planet, although not always perfect, truly can be paradise and for a short while you can forget your earthly sorrow, and lose yourself in the wonder of this music.

It is about those moments when you can feel the perfection of creation the beauty of mathematics, the elation of action and reaction, and that is the kind of perfection I want to be connected to.

Einaudi was born on 23rd November 1955 in Turin, Italy. He began to play music at an early age and his mother taught him. Naturally gifted and talented, he began his training at one of the most prestigious and leading colleges in Italy, the Conservatorio Verdi. In 1982, he earned a diploma in composition.

All of his music has elegance and openness. His style is very much meditative and it makes you look inward within yourself. Most people who appreciate quality music will realise instantly the exceptional qualities he brings that are unique and unmatched.

Anyone with just a basic understanding of music can tell from listening to this that Ludovico is the foremost leading pianist and musician of our time, and the great thing is that you can hear him play live at his concerts.

If you have never heard live music then I would strongly recommend you go to one of his live concerts, because live music is something to be experienced, at least once in your life. His official website is where you can find the schedules of his live concerts.

His excellent talent makes him the ideal person to write musical scores in Hollywood movies. Consequently, he is one of the most respected composers within Hollywood circles and highly sought after, with an ever-increasing popularity.
