Notes and Editorial Reviews

Each of Arvo Pärt’s four symphonies is a world unto itself and are newly recorded here under the direction of one of Pärt’s most trusted colleagues, Tõnu Kaljuste. Heard in chronological order they also tell us much about the great Estonian composer’s musical and spiritual journey, and the very different ways in which he has exercised his craft beginning with No. 1 written as a student in 1963 to No. 4 in 2008 by which time he was the world’s most widelyperformed contemporary composer.
