“In the Dark” :: Arvo Pärt and Palestrina
For the second year running, VOX will present a programme as part of the “In the Dark” series by Biblioteek Productions in an unusual presentation of classical music. The evening will pair music by the minimalist Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (b. 1935) with the Renaissance polyphonist Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c. 1525-1594).
