"Two of Arvo Pärt's more recent works make this new ECM release a particularly rewarding experience. The familiar deep-rooted spirituality viewed from a wider perspective: more colourful and worldly." (Gramophone)
The long-awaited new album by the great Estonian composer brings new colours to his unique body of work. The purity and the sense of timelessness remain; the harmonic palette is subtly expanded. These recordings of "Orient & Occident", "Ein Wallfahrtslied" and "Como cierva sedienta" are already attracting many positive reviews.
"Pilgrims' Song" (version for men's choir and string orchestra)
"Orient & Occident", for string orchestra
"Como cierva sedienta" (version for women's choir and orchestra)
