The impact of Spiegel im Spiegel

Reading time: 1 min. Arvo Pärt

I feel that whenever I play Arvo Pärt’s music I do begin to go deeper within myself in order to try to create something of this spirituality that his music contains. So it’s almost as if you go inside yourself and you question who you are and how this music is bringing out different aspects.

The piece of music that I have almost the least to do is the Spiegel im Spiegel, but what I have to do is almost let go of myself. I think that being a vessel for this piece is a good way of describing it. (Tasmin Little)

In August 2011, BBC Radio 4 published a show exploring the impact of Arvo Pärt's Spiegel im Spiegel on listener’s lives.

BBC Radio 4 has recently uploaded the full programme to SoundCloud, listen to it here:
