Book Description

12 Nov 2012 Estonian Literature
This collection of essays and interviews is an ideal guide to the work and thought of one of the world's greatest and most original living composers. In Enzo Restagno's extensive interview, Part gives an intimate description of his work and life in Soviet Estonia, his emigration, his artistic odyssey, and his worldview. Then, Arvo Part's compositional technique is the focus of a musicological essay by Leopold Brauneiss. Finally, Saale Kareda explores the spiritual aspects of the composer's approach to his works. Two acceptance speeches, delivered by Part on receiving major European prizes, complete this fascinating and illuminating portrait.

Product Description

Review

"[Part] is a composer who speaks in hauntingly clear, familiar tones, yet he does not duplicate the music of the past. He has put his finger on something that is almost impossible to put into words--something to do with the power of music to obliterate the rigidities of space and time. One after the other, his chords silence the noise of the self, binding the mind to an eternal present." --Alex Ross

A most illuminating book. Arvo Pärt has created a body of music that is original and inspiring. This book opens his creative process to a layman.
