Born in Turin, the pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi trained at the Conservatorio in Milan, then continued his studies under the guidance of Luciano Berio.
With Le onde, Einaudi put together a cycle of ballades for piano (performed by the author) inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel The Waves, in which the waves are a symbol of life itself.
Einaudi collaborated with the Armenian Djivan Gasparijan, a past master of the duduk (a kind of small oboe made of apricot wood) “to emphasise the popular (and traditional) roots of areas such as the Caucasus or the Balkans, which are more closely connected than one would think with the Mediterranean”.
