Pärt on the BBC

January 19, 2011

The BBC radio programme Music Matters went to Estonia last weekend to interview the wonderful composer Arvo Pärt. It is a fascinating discussion that touches on several topics that have come up here from time to time: music and morals, and music and the sacred, for instance. Each time I hear Arvo Pärt speak I am more impressed by him.

The programme is available for listening only until this Saturday. The segment with Pärt covers roughly minutes 8-22.

    Thanks for pointing out this episode! I loved the description of Tallinn and I spent time in the church mentioned. I’m reminded that I need to post my photos…
