The oeuvre of one of the greatest figures of contemporary composition, 83-year-old Arvo Pärt, is gaining ever more ground in Hungary, yet until now there have been few incidents of our music halls devoting themselves to his art in a concert employing an entire, large-scale performance apparatus. This, however, is the case here. And what is more, the Liszt Academy is playing host to what could be considered the most authentic Pärt performers there are, in the shapes of the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra and Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, the head of which – and conductor of this recital – is Tõnu Kaljuste. The four compositions on show represent different creative periods of the composer: Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten (1977) is representative of the new compositional process developed during this time and is one of the first of the tintinnabuli style, Te Deum derives from the 1980s, while Salve Regina (2001) and Adam’s Lament (2009) are two of the composer’s later works.

The concert is the opening event of “Estonian Music Week", which is dedicated to the centenary of the Republic of Estonia.
