Chamber music meets sound therapy

 

Four musicians will perform the works of the world-famous Estonian composer Arvo Pärt at three concerts during April. The works “Fratres”, “Für Alina”, “Spiegel im Spiegel”, “Variationen zur Gesundung von Arinuschka”, “Ukuaru Waltz” and “Passacaglia” will be performed at the concerts. The pieces will be played on violin, piano, and gong.

The soloists in the concert will be pianist Auli Teppo, violinist Leena Laas and multi-instrumentalists and sound therapists Lilia Märtmaa and Deniss Vinogradov.

The gong is an idiophonic percussion instrument that has a wide spectrum in terms of pitch and its vibration frequencies are wide, reaching between 4 and 7 Hz. This frequency has a connection to emotions, creativity, intuition, imagination, and memories. It can also be interpreted as a therapeutic frequency.

Arvo Pärt is considered one of the greatest composers of spiritual music today. His musical style has been described as “the new simplicity” and “holy minimalism”. The composer calls the musical style and compositional system created by himself, “tintinnabuli”.

 

The concerts at the locations below will last about two hours:

03.04. St. John’s Church, Tallinn

12.04. Alppila Church, Helsinki

16.04. St. John’s Church, Tartu
