Tabula Rasa: the Music of Arvo Pärt

Judah Adashi, composer and composition faculty at Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, artistic director, Evolution Contemporary Music Series & Rise Bmore

Dr. Judah Adashi, a composer on the faculty of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, returns to the Art Seminar Group to discuss the music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (b. 1935). Pärt is best known for his signature “tintinnabuli” style, developed in the early 1970s. The surface simplicity of this musical language marked a radical departure from dominant approaches to composition in late 20th-century European music. We will explore some of Pärt’s major works and consider why he is one of the most-performed living composers in the world.
