I would compare my music with white light which contains all the colours. Only a prism can extract the colours and make them visible to us. The prism could be the consciousness of the listener.
– Arvo Pärt

About us

The Arvo Pärt Centre seeks to make the composer’s music and thoughts widely accessible. Knowledge about his work should be passed on to future generations and conveyed throughout the world.

The “heart” of the Arvo Pärt Centre, the archive, contains relevant material for study and research and serves as the central access point to it.

The Arvo Pärt Centre aims to become an open meeting place for musicians, musicologists, research fellows, schools and everyone interested in the music of the composer and its genesis.


Our supporters

In addition to the income from the sale of tickets and other items and state subsidies from the Republic of Estonia, the Arvo Pärt Centre finances its activities with the generous help of its donors.

When you make a donation, you are giving much more than financial support; you are helping us to cultivate an environment for researching the work of Arvo Pärt – his music and its message. Through your help, we can extend the archive and use it to make Arvo Pärt’s heritage accessible to the public.

Whether you are a company, a foundation, or an individual contributor, discover the various ways in which you can partner with the Arvo Pärt Centre:

One-time or a recurring donation
