Warsaw | Andrew Shenton's publication – "Arvo Pärt. Audible light"


Rector of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music, Prof. Klaudiusz Baran, PhD. Habil. invites you to a meeting devoted to the publication Arvo Pärt. Audible light by Andrew Shenton, which will take place on 3 December 2019 at 6 p.m. in the Karol Szymanowski Hall (2 Okólnik St.).

This is the first monograph in Poland devoted to the work of Arvo Pärt (born in 1935). This world-famous Estonian composer has gained recognition not only of musicologists and music lovers, but also of the creators of broadly understood mass culture and its recipients. The composer's genius and character traits, above all modesty and kindness, contributed to his icon status and popularity.

The book, published by the Chopin University Press, appears only a year after the composer was awarded the title of doctor honoris causa of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music (26 November 2018) and a year after the premiere of the English version. The presentation will be complemented by a performance of the Chopin University Modern Ensemble conducted by Ignacy Zalewski. The artists will perform pieces by Arvo Pärt and Aleksander Kościów.

Admission to the event is free!
