Notes & Reviews:

This is the fourth volume in the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project series. The Estonian-born American conductor is using this album as a tribute to Arvo Pärt, a clsoe friend of Järvi. This volume celebrates Pärt's eightieth birthday and shows off his uniqe style of contemporary music. Järvi has gathered together works from Pärt's fourty years of composing as a culmination of years of collaboartion, musical exploration, and spritiual connection. Pärt's music is heard here in a unique, fascinating, and intense way. Featured on this album is violinis Anne Akiko Meyers who is playing the trilogy for solo violin and strings that has been recreated by Kristjan Järvi. Järvi conducts the MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. He has won the German Record Critics Prize and a Swedish Grammy, among other accomplishments. This exciting release also includes a thirty-two page color booklet in French, English, and German.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
This impossibly disorganized production from Kristjan JSrvi's Sound Project collects 8 PSrt pieces, one in two versions, from 1968 to 2006 for the composer's 80th birthday celebration. He deserves better.
