Description
This collection of essays and interviews is an ideal introduction to the work and thought of one of the world's greatest and most original living classical composers. In Enzo Restagno's extensive interview, Arvo Pärt gives an intimate description of life in Soviet Estonia, his 1980 emigration, his artistic odyssey, and his worldview. Along with 16 pages of black and white photographs and a discography, the book includes two essays examining Arvo Pärt's compositional technique and the spiritual aspects of the composer's works, as well as a pair of acceptance speeches, delivered by Pärt on receiving major European prizes.

"[Pärt] 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
