The World's Greatest Music
Katherine shares some of her favourite contemporary classics.
A contemporary composer whose fame and success is now global thanks to his recordings and the radio is Ludovico Einaudi. He started out studying with the avant-garde composer Luciano Berio and making music which is quite different from the pieces we know and love today. Le Onde (‘The Waves’) was Einaudi’s first big hit, and it’s also the title track from his first major album, released in 1996. It takes as its inspiration the Virginia Woolf novel The Waves and the undulating, hypnotic melody evokes images of the rhythms and patterns of the ocean.
