Work introduction

Silouan’s Song was written in 1991 as a composition for string orchestra. The work is based on a text by St. Silouan (1866– 1938), whose theme is the yearning for God. At the suggestion of the Cello Octet Amsterdam, with whom Arvo Pärt has already realised many concert projects, Pärt rewrote the work for 8 cellos.
