9780198166160: Arvo Pärt (Oxford Studies of Composers)

Estonian composer Arvo Pärt is a unique voice in today's music. Using a tonal idiom based on a mixture of scales and triads, Pärt created a style called "tintinnabuli." In this first full-length study, Paul Hillier draws on his own considerable experience working with Pärt and his music to explore the famous tintinnabuli works in depth. Hillier covers the music of Pärt's earlier, somewhat neglected serial period as well, and sheds valuable light on the development of Pärt's music by looking at Pärt's biography and at the influences of Russian Orthodox spirituality, minimalism, and early music.

With the increasing popularity of recording and performing Pärt's music, Hillier's own thoughts on performance issues will be especially welcome in the world of contemporary music.

The book includes appendices containing a discography, a bibliography, and a list of works.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The music of the Estonian-born composer Arvo Part is a unique and powerful voice in the contemporary world. Using a tonal idiom based on a mixture of scales and triads, Part created a style that he calls tintinnabuli . Listening to it, one is reminded of the passionate and tranquility of some Russian icon, or of certain memorable scenes in the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. In this book, the first full-length study of Part, Paul Hillier explores the tintinnabuli works in considerable depth. He also examines the music of Part s earlier, somewhat neglected serial period, and charts the composer s steady evolution towards the abstract tonality of his later years. In addition, a biographical chapter and discussion of topics such as Russian Orthodox spirituality, minimalism, and the influence of early music, combine to make this a substantial introduction to Part s music. Hillier also draws on his own experience of working with the composer to offer thoughts on various performance issues. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198166160
