Product Description

CD Description

Arvo Pärt's piano works range from his first public statement as a composer, the Zwei Sonatinen, to his latest, the life affi rming miniature Für Anna Maria. Moving away from his 1960s atonal language, Pärt found an essence of truth in music embodied in the simple lines of Für Alina. Lamentate is a vast monument which the composer has described as a lament not for the dead, but for the living. Multi award-winning pianist Ralph van Raat has been praised for his sensitive and technically refined playing of Hans Ottes Book of Sounds (8.572444) (MusicWeb International).

Review

Over half a century the music of Arvo Pärt has evolved from spiky neoclassicism to contemplative mysticism, sometimes attempting to integrate elements of both. Lamentate, the big piece he wrote in 2002 for Anish Kapoor around his Tate commission Marsyas, is by some way the least successful piece here, an uneasy mix of bombastic, quasi-romantic piano concerto with hazy spirituality that outstays its welcome. But all the other piano pieces are wonderful: burbling baroque toccatas, hypnotic variations (echoing his Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten) and the pared down Für Anna Maria of 2006, new to disc. Fine playing by Ralph van Raat. --The Observer,25/09/11

This a well-conceived crash-course in significant moments in the development of Part's music. Performance ***** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,Nov'11

A champion of minimalism profiles Part the pianist. --Gramophone,Dec'11

Format: Audio CD
Despite Pärt's star having risen brightly in the past twenty or so years, this is the first CD that I have come across that is dedicated to his piano music, in fact the only piano music that I have heard before is Fratres, and then that was live, so this disc makes a welcome addition to my collection of the composers music.
As anyone who has heard Pärt's first three symphonies will tell you, there have been two distinct periods in his musical development, the first, a more avant-garde serialist aspect of his music, which was prominent in his earlier music, and secondly the "Holy Minimalism" which he began to develop from the mid 1970's and with which he is mostly associated. This present disc presents both aspects of his musical development, the Zwei Sonatinen für Klavier, Op. 1 and the Partita, Op.2 both date from the late 1950's and clearly represent the serialism of his early music, but don't let this put you off, they are quite short works and strangely attractive works, which are influenced by the great Soviet composers and even to my ears, Poulenc.
The third work on the disc are the Variationen zur Gesundung von Arinushka which dates from 1977 and is so representative of his "Tintinnabuli" style, that even on a blind listening I suspect that most people would be able to identify that it was a work by Pärt. This is followed by two further short works in this style, Für Alina from 1976, and Für Anna Maria from 2006.
The final work on the disc is the grandly titled Lamentate: Homage to Anish Kapoor and his sculpture `Marsyas', this is the only work on the disc for piano and orchestra and dates from 2002.
