"Der in Berlin lebende Este Arvo Prt gilt als einer der wichtigsten Komponisten der Nachkriegszeit. Sein Post Moderner Stil bedient sich gleichermaen althergebrachter und neuer Methoden und brachte ihm den Ruf eines Visionrs ein. Tabula Rasa ist eine seiner am weitesten verbreiteten Kompositionen und eine gutes Beispiel fr seinen ausgereiften Stil. Andchtig, zeitlos und dster zugleich, mit Harmonien, die aus einer anderen Welt zu kommen scheinen, zeigt sich hier warum Prt sich als Ausnahme Komponist des spten 20.Jahrhunderts etabliert hat. ARVO PRT: TABULA RASA: Concerto for 2 violins,prepared piano and string orchestra (1977) SYMPHONY No. 1 "Poliphonic" (1964) COLLAGE ON A THEME B-A-C-H (1964) PRO ET CONTRA: Concerto for cello and orchestra. (1966) (1) Crtomir Siskovic and Victor Kuleshov - Violinen Petr Laul - Piano (4) Vadim Messermann - Cello Congress Orchestra Conductors: Paolo Gatto (1), Vladimir Norets (2 - 4) Sound engineer: Gerhard Tses Petersburg Recording Studio, November 1995 The Berlin based Estonian Arvo Prt is one of the most important composers of the post-war era. His postmodern style is equally inspired by traditional as by new methods and has earned him the reputation of being a visionary. Tabula Rasa stands as one of his most widely-performed compositions, as well as a fine example of his mature style. At once reverent, bleak and timeless, rich with otherwordly harmonies, it shows why Prt has established himself as an exceptional composer of the late 20th century.
