A concert devoted to the music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, an Orthodox Christian, will take place in New York City at Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall, and will feature performers closely associated with Mr. Pärt’s music. Traveling from Estonia for these events are the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, with their conductor Tõnu Kaljuste.
The all-Pärt program in the famous hall, at 57th Street and Seventh Ave., includes the works Fratres, Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten, Adam’s Lament, Salve Regina, and Te Deum. The concert is a highlight in the ongoing Arvo Pärt Project, inaugurated in 2011 by St. Vladimir’s Seminary faculty members Dr. Nicholas Reeves and Dr. Peter Bouteneff, with the purpose of exploring the spiritual roots of Mr. Pärt’s music.
