O Successores

Arvo Pärt and medieval music

O Successores is a unique combination of the East and the West. It is the music of the past and the present. The music of Arvo Pärt, one of the most eminent composers of our age, and the sound of vocal medieval music are timeless, eternal and open.

About the project

Concert

O Successores is a unique combination of the East and the West. It is the music of the past and the present. The music of Arvo Pärt, one of the most eminent composers of our age, and the sound of vocal medieval music are timeless, eternal and open. Being more than a century apart, their sharing of common aesthetic values is amazing. At the same time, they are in constant opposition as seen in Pärt's vocal drama Yearning of a Deer.
The medieval songs of the Western and Eastern churches, the early polyphony of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, weightless instrumental music by Pärt - all these form an opus which creates new states. It can be inspiring, contemplative, causing tension as a consequence of challenge of the past and the present.
