Description:

1st Printing. 185 pages. Published in 2012. Retrospective collection of interviews. One of the best books on Arvo Part and contemporary music ever published. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a small independent press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents "Arvo Part In Conversation". That is to say, in his own lucid and inimitable voice. "An ideal guide to the work and thought of one of the world's greatest and most original composers. In Enzo Restagno's extensive Interview, Part gives an intimate description of his work and life in Soviet Estonia, his emigration, his artistic odyssey, and his worldview. Arvo Part's compositional technique is the focus of a musicological essay by Leopold Brauneiss. Saale Kareda explores the spiritual aspects of the composer's approach to his works. Two Acceptance Speeches, delivered by Part on receiving major European prizes, complete this fascinating and illuminating portrait" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Arvo Part collectors. This title is a classic. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest composers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1564787869. Bookseller Inventory # 18605
