Für Alina, Fratres, Tabula Rasa, and many others: many of Arvo Pärt's scores have become contemporary classics, celebrated around the world. From his native Estonia, Pärt captured the wide open spaces and ultramarine blue, crossing the whole of musical modernism to forge a unique aesthetic, the tintinnabuli. The passionate study of Gregorian chant and ancient polyphony, revolutionizing his conception of sound, inspired him to create architectures that are minimalist in their material but disproportionate in the spiritual depth they reveal. Post-modern, religious indeed, but above all rich in moving solemnity and universality: such is the art that the instrumentalists and choristers from Dijon celebrate in this concert-event.
