"If we are not scared away by such exposure, then the confrontation with Arvo Pärt can even cleanse our approach to music in general: a scale is suddenly no longer something to be taken for granted, it becomes a conscious experience of climbing and falling..."
Andreas Peer Kähler, Berlin (1995)
Translation: Robert Lindell
www.universaledition.com
"...[Pärt's] impulse toward simplicity and toward a music which expressed his deep spirituality guided him in developing a powerfully affecting style of composition. What is interesting in Pärt's music is what is not there. There is little rhythmic complexity, no extravagant use of orchestration, no self-conscious harmonic display or dissonance. What we do find is a straightforward flowing rhythm, reminiscent of chant, and a very spare harmonic palette of pure intervals."
Arvo Pärt and the New Simplicity (excerpt)
October 11, 1998
