For the first time in the world, all four Arvo Pärt’s symphonies will be performed at one concert. This will give a magnificent overview of the composer’s styles of creation. The First Symphony Polyphonic (1963) that Pärt dedicated to his teacher Heino Eller is a dodecaphonic composition that was completed as a graduation work of the conservatoire; the Second Symphony (1966) uses the technique of collage; the Third Symphony (1971), dedicated to Neeme Järvi was born of searches for a new musical language; and the Forth Symphony Los Angeles (2008), dedicated to Mikhail Khodorkovsky has been written in his famous tintinnabuli style.

Klassikaraadio will transmit the concert to EBU member states as part of the à la carte Concert Series.

Concert is produced by Nargenfestival & ERSO.
Tickets: 15 € / 12 €.
