Sándor Szabó: Waves

Sándor Szabó (1956 – ) is a contemporary acoustic guitar artist. He was the first in Hungary to play modern solo acoustic guitar music. The composition called Waves was inspired by a Buddhist notion about the essence of water and waves: without water, there are no waves, the water is the primary essence, while the wave is a phenomenon of its movement. The undulating rhythm of the sparkling notes that ring together in the piece creates a texture that is evocative of the experience of waves, rendered even stronger by the large, spacious, echoing venue.
