Pärt at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival

Reading time: 2 min. Arvo Pärt

The Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, held from 6 July to 25 August, features a special programme that focuses on the music of Arvo Pärt and presents more than 15 works of the composer’s catalogue.

A highlight of this programme will be the Cello8ctet Amsterdam’s performance of seven works by Pärt, all of which he transcribed for 8 violoncellos.

Arvo Pärt on the ensemble: “The octet is a piece of gold, I discovered this group 10 years too late.”
