Arvo Pärt: Mein Weg
It reads: My path has long hours, / jolts and pains. / My path has peaks and sea-troughs, / sand and sky. / Mine or thine.
The image of life's portentous sea-troughs seems to have found an echo in the work's compositional fabric with its constant, dynamically differentiated upward and downward motion. We can hear it, for example, in the three distinctly structured forms of motion using the same tonal material, each assigned to a different set of instruments. Wolfgang Sandner
