Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Estonian composer Arvo Part's timeless music has touched listeners for decades. He is one of the most performed living composers. This new release features eight choral pieces which were written between 1988 and 2012. These works feature some of Part's finest vocal writing, especially in the three-movement Triodion and the seven-movement Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen. Part is famous for his tintinnabuli style, which he took on after distancing himself from his earlier writing which utilized neo-classicism, serialism, and polystylism. Of his style, Part once wrote, "I could compare my music to white light which contains all colors. Only a prism can divide the colors and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener." The Latvian Radio Choir's prior releases for Ondone have garnered them critical acclaim. Their recording of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil received the Record of the Month, Editor's Choice, and was a nominee for the Gramophone Awards in 2013.
