Product description

Product Description

Paul Hillier découvre la musique de Arvo Pärt en 1980, au moment où le compositeur estonien vient d'émigrer à Berlin : leur première rencontre voit naître une complicité immédiate. C'était exactement le genre de musique à laquelle j'aspirais", explique Hillier, auteur d'un ouvrage sur Pärt. Enregistré en présence permanente du compositeur (ce qui permettait notamment des améliorations de l'interprétation et des mises au point), De Profundis nous offre un panorama couvrant 33 ans de vie créatrice."

Marx and Lenin probably would not have appreciated the irony, but after decades of Communist repression of religion, the former Soviet bloc is the source of a profound outpouring of explicitly Christian expression. This is manifested in the music of such composers as Henryk Gorecki, a Pole, and Arvo Pärt, an Estonian. Part, a refugee from serialism, here writes in a quasi-minimalist style that he calls "tintinnabuli," a sound that echoes medieval composition. A fan of vocal music ("The human voice is the most perfect instrument of all"), he uses choruses to superb effect. This disc includes some of his best work, including the popular Magnificat, beautifully rendered by the Theatre of Voices under Paul Hillier. --Sarah Bryan Miller
