All About Jazz
There is plenty of music that is as profound as Tabula Rasa , but only rarely does it reach similar emotional heights. The work is partially a prayer and partially a meditation that burns with passion and suffering. Pärt's music can be described as "simple," in that it features very few instruments, which are sounded with maximum effect and timbre. Pärt has coined the word "tintinnabulation" (which takes its name from the Latin word for bells) to describe his style of work which dates from the early 1970s. This places unusual emphasis on individual notes and makes extensive use of silence. All of these compositions were performed by some of the most important names in the music world.
