Mar 15, 2018

On this Patreon-sponsored episode of Sticky Notes, we take a deep dive into the music of the great Estonian composer Arvo Part.  Part is a singular figure in the world of contemporary music as a living composer beloved by both audiences and musicians.   During the episode, we'll chart the course of Part's musical life, which features his incredible transition from avant garde serialism to a wholly new style of composing, called Tintinnabuli.  We'll also explore the relationship between tonality, accessibility, intellectualism, and modernity as it relates to Part's music and the avant-garde which he rejected so forcefully.  Thanks so much for listening!
