Asking is a large-scale work for piano solo that is a meditation and reflection on all of the meanings of the word "Asking".

Asking was specially composed for Eve Egoyan.

As with many of de Alvear's pieces for piano, it is based on a open structure that requires the pianist to make many little and big decisions while playing, so the work itself is asking questions of the pianist.

De Alvear says: "The dialogue between the interpreter and the music is one of the main concerns in my music. It is very important for a work to focus, like a mantra does, the thinking energy of the pianist interpreting the score, so that there is enough space for the inner being of the interpreter to open up and blossom."
