Lecture-recital : a Beginner’s guide to Arvo Pärt

Why is it that the music of Arvo Pärt attracts, sways and moves such a wide audience? Is it because of the underlying messages of peace, tolerance and love? How come the minimalistic melodies inspired by bells can almost put us in a state of meditation? The Belgian pianist, musicologist and philosopher Waldo Geuns demonstrates the musical style of Arvo Pärt at the piano and tells us about the influence of the composer on contemporary classical, pop and rock music.
