POSTPONED: Rachmaninov and Pärt


Sat 13. March 2021, 17.00


Arvo Pärt Centre


Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Conductor Kaspars Putniņš


The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, whose annual performance at the Arvo Pärt Centre has become a beautiful tradition, brings to the audience Sergei Rachmaninov’s Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. Alongside this classical Russian masterpiece, some works by Arvo Pärt will be performed. All the works in the programme were created in the 20th century, and although they are separated by more than seven decades, the meeting point between them is the Word: they are based on the sacred texts, and the music which conveys a timeless message affects each listener in a personal way.

Sergei Rachmaninov
“Liturgy of St John Chrysostom”, op 31

Arvo Pärt
“The Woman with the Alabaster Box”
“The Deer’s Cry”


From December 23 to January 2 the Arvo Pärt Centre will be closed for Christmas holidays.
