Arvo Pärt

Manchester Camerata
Gábor Takács-Nagy


Arvo Pärt’s music, at once ancient and modern, seeks to communicate what the composer has described as “love for every note”. His music is utterly unique and of huge appeal with audiences internationally; today, Pärt is the most performed living composer in the world.

Arvo Pärt, Manchester Camerata’s Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy and MIF have curated a special evening of orchestral and choral works that perfectly demonstrates the overwhelmingly spiritual quality of his music.

This one-off concert celebrates Pärt’s first visit to Manchester and the extraordinary project that brings together the work of Gerhard Richter and Arvo Pärt at the Whitworth as part of MIF15.

'I love his music, and I love the fact that he is such a brave, talented man... He’s completely out of step with the zeitgeist and yet he’s enormously popular, which is so inspiring. His music fulfills a deep human need that has nothing to do with fashion.' Steve Reich on Arvo Pärt
