The music of the Estonian-born composer Arvo Part is a unique and powerful voice in the contemporary world. Using a tonal idiom based on a mixture of scales and triads, Part created a style that he calls 'tintinnabuli'. Listening to it, one is reminded of the passionate and tranquility of some Russian icon, or of certain memorable scenes in the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. In this book, the first full-length study of Part, Paul Hillier explores the tintinnabuli works in considerable depth. He also examines the music of Part's earlier, somewhat neglected serial period, and charts the composer's steady evolution towards the 'abstract tonality' of his later years. In addition, a biographical chapter and discussion of topics such as Russian Orthodox spirituality, minimalism, and the influence of early music, combine to make this a substantial introduction to Part's music. Hillier also draws on his own experience of working with the composer to offer thoughts on various performance issues.

Arvo Pärts Spiegel im Spiegel for violin (here for violoncello) and piano, written in 1978, illustrates his creative principles: above a permanent flow of chords on the piano, the cello unfolds acantilena in long note values, which grows out of succinct steps. This cantilena spins out sweeping, chorale-like arches and spreads itself out more and more. It thus gives rise to a new architectonic configuration which, like a mediation chapel, stimulaties reflection, prayer or the desire for redemption.
