Arvo Pärt Weekend Opening Concert

Annelien Van Wauwe, clarinet
Tõnu Kaljuste, conductor
Vlaams Radio Koor
Brussels Philharmonic

Flagey is devoting a major festival to the work of Arvo Pärt – and with him, a number of other composers from the Baltic states. Arvo Pärt is unparalleled in his ability to touch a nerve, for he was often deeply

affected by world events: he wrote Da Pacem Domine after the bomb attacks in Madrid in 2004, as homage to the victims. His teacher, Veljo Tormis, had used Estonian folk music as a veiled protest against the Soviet occupation. Paradise lost, that is the lament of Adam – but not for ever, not as long as there is more that unites us than what separates us. A message that Peteris Vasks aptly conveys: Dona Nobis Pacem – grant us peace.
