Spiegel Im Spiegel - Arvo Pärt - A Portrait (His Works • His Life) (CD)

The sections of Spiegel im Spiegel allow for a quiet, a calm into which the music falls like rain on a reflecting pool. And like the clarity and rippling that come with a rainfall on a window pane, a listener's attention is rewarded and amplified as well as absorbed. Thank you, Arvo Part/5().

Spiegel im Spiegel (Mirror in the Mirror) is one of the best known and most performed pieces by Arvo Pärt and also one of his last compositions before his departure from Estonia. In , the renowned Russian violinist Vladimir Spivakov commissioned a piece from Pärt for violin and piano, and already in December of the same year he premiered it at the Moscow Conservatory with the pianist Boris .

Arvo Pärt's "Spiegel im Spiegel" for violin and piano, written in , illustrates his creative principles: above a permanent flow of chords on the piano, the cello unfolds acantilena in long note values, which grows out of succinct steps. This cantilena spins out sweeping, chorale Brand: UE.

Pärt further extended his so-called tintinnabuli (i.e. bells) style in small-scale pieces like the different versions of Spiegel im Spiegel and Variationen zur Gesundung von Arinuschka. Although this last piece has ‘classical’ features as well. This release shows an aspect of Arvo Pärt which is seldomly heard: his small-scale chamber.
