They call him a ‘Holy Minimalist’, but there’s nothing small about the achievement of Arvo Pärt. Centred, sophisticated and profoundly beautiful, it’s no wonder that Pärt’s music has become Estonia’s greatest musical export. As Ensemble 10/10 turns 21, and Estonia celebrates 100 years of independence, this is a portrait of a small nation with a big musical voice. Three pieces by Pärt form the quiet centre of a concert that places the utterly individual sounds of Lepo Sumera and Erkki-Sven Tüür alongside the music of Liverpool composer Stephen Davismoon and a premiere from Grace-Evangeline Mason, our Christopher Brooks Competition Prize Winner, in association with the Rushworth Foundation.
