The sound of silence: Estonian-born Arvo Part is considered the contemporary composer par excellence, a cult figure of the avant-garde, a man who redifined modernism with muisc of hypnotic tension and fascinating spirtuality. The performers or the orchestral and choral music on this release are top-quality artisits and ensembles from Part's native Estonia, notalby the conductors Paavo Jarvi and Tonu Kaljuste, who present uniquely authentic readings.
