Arvo Part’s Fratres and his. Tintinnabuli Technique. By Rade Zivanovic. Supervisor. Knut Tønsberg. This Master‟s Thesis is carried out as a part of the education. Telarc’s Fratres-Fest proves beyond doubt that good basic material can be re- worked almost ad nauseam – if the manner of its arrangement is sufficiently. Fratres by Arvo Pärt is one of my favourite pieces of music. The analytical meets the aesthetical as Pärt takes us on a meditative, harmonical.

I’m not particularly interested in SIDs or in classical music rendered with computers or anything, but you have created something really special here. And this is the cause of all of our contradictions, our obstinacy, our narrow-mindedness, our faith and our grief.

The following picture illustrates the refuges and segments as a terribly long pedestrian crossing.

Next comes the gentle cascading of Part’s Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Brittenwith its weeping sequences and lone, tolling bell. What a truly breathtaking composition!
