My year with Arvo Part - he is a man of courage, humility and authenticity | The Guardian | Arvo Pärt is famously media-averse. So how did Günter Atteln make a film about the composer, and what did he learn about him?
Arvo Pärt: Fratres (for cello and piano) (1989) Part does minimalism like great copulation. It is never too sparse, too fast or too slow, it builds, it does things to your insides. He is definitely one of the greatest living modern composers of our time and outside of classical music circles, virtually unheard of, which is sad because he is so incredible. http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/Arvo_Part.aspx
