Arvo Part turns 75–and where have I been? Amazing Music

source: Arvo Part website

I was driving home form a round of golf, it was about 11:30 am, the fall light in LA was streaming through my windshield when I happened to flip the radio to Frates a piece by Arvo Part.

Frates (String and Percussion arrangement)

Arvo Part is an Estonian composer who my son has been telling me about but I, well simply, never had time or room for what with Beethoven, Bartok, Ravel and others. But as I drove and listened to what one might call simple music, it started taking me to a deeper part of myself and I felt transported, driving in this well spiritual state as I passed jogger, dog-walkers, grocery shoppers…..If you read about his work and listen to some of his great pieces, like Frates, Requiem for Benjamin Britten and Seigfried and Seigfried, you may find the same.

I searched down the piece I listened to through the Arvo Part Facebook page and found that I am late to the Arvo Part party. Highly recommend a listen.
