Relevant Tones Features Arvo Pärt

Estonian composer Arvo Part

Estonian composer Arvo Part

Saturday at 5:00 pm


His fans say his music is “outside time.” Estonian composer Arvo Pärt reaches back to the ancient; to the mystical, contemplative style of twelfth century composer Hildegard von Bingen; while evoking colors and harmonies that are strikingly modern.

Though many of the world’s music-lovers are divided by genre, which points to age, race, religion, ethnicity, etc.; the followers of Arvo Pärt wash over those barriers. One of those devoted followers is Icelandic pop icon Björk, who sat down to interview him stating, “Arvo Pärt is a so-called serious composer who, in a very sensitive way, has got the whole battle of this century inside him.” She said to him, “I like your music very, very much because you give space to the listener. He can go inside and live there.”

This week’s edition of Relevant Tones takes you into the sound world of Arvo Pärt, exploring his vocal and instrumental works.
