In principio. The Word in Arvo Pärt’s Music

Reading time: 1 min. Arvo Pärt

Texts live their independent lives and they wait for us: each person has their own time for finding those texts. These encounters occur when the texts are no longer considered as literature or works of art, but as anchors or models. (Arvo Pärt)

Last Friday the Arvo Pärt Centre presented its first book “In principio. The Word in Arvo Pärt’s Music” in the hall of Estonian Academy of Sciences.

The book brings together 81 texts of Arvo Pärt’s works, complete with English translations. The works have been arranged chronologically, encompassing Pärt’s work over almost 60 years.

Find out more about the book on the website of the Arvo Pärt Centre.

Photos from the presentation are available on the Centre’s Facebook page.
