ARVO PÄRT: Te Deum for three choirs, prepared piano, string orchestra and tape
In cooperation with: Sibafest
Arvo Pärt (b. 1935) is one of the most performed contemporary composers in the world. This year he turns 85 years.
Te Deum from 1985 is a big and impressive ½ hour piece for three choirs, prepared piano, string orchestra and tape – not performed often in Finland so do come and experience it live!
"Te Deum was a quest for something evanescent, something long lost or not yet found, a quest for something believed to be non-existent, but so real that it exists not only within us but beyond our being as well."
