Info


Arvo Pärt: In Principio. This collection of music by Arvo Pärt includes six of his choral and orchestral works, five of which were written between 2000 and 2007. This is not music that breaks new ground for the composer. Its austere tone is suffused in mysticism, and it manages to sound both archaic and very new, with a surface that can seem simplistic, but which in fact is rigorously worked out. The selection, though, offers a nicely diverse sampling of pieces, some for orchestra and some for chorus and orchestra, representing a variety of moods, from the somber Für Lennart in memoriam to the contrapuntally lively Me. Tallin Chamber Orchestra Estonian Symphony Orchestra Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir Tõnu Kaljuste The eagerly-awaited new Pärt: Released 25 free to Arvo Pärt In Principio La Sindone, Cecilia, Vergine Romana and more. 5 tracks 50:33. John 1:1: In principio erat verbum. In principio, for choir and orchestra by Arvo Pärt. In principio, chant by Hildegard von Bingen. In principio, work for piano by Ludovico Einaudi. In principio erat verbum, motet by Josquin Desprez. In principio erat verbum, motet by Orlando di Lasso. Arvo Pärt has violated all the rules: his music has cultivated simplicity, it is overtly religious, it basks in a tonality that is often pre-common practice. And above all, it offers consolation, but not of a cheap, New Agey sort. But the recent music in premiere recordings represented here in most substantial form by In principio, 2003, for chorus and orchestra, and the 2005 orchestral La Sindone has grown freer, less process-driven, and richer in its orchestration. Some of the originality has been lost-we dont have here, for example, the extraordinary cello-choir sound of Fratres- but what is gained is a fully integrated roundness of sound. In Principio, Pärt's new album, his eleventh for ECM, is both a continuation and a recording which posits fresh directions in his music, offers fresh colors. Four pieces, In principio, La Sindone, Cecilia, vergine romana and Für Lennart in memoriam are heard in première recordings. The album also revisits and revises important pieces. We hear a transformed Da Pacem Domine, and a radically new version of Mein Weg. Pärt: In Principio - V.
