Amidst Shadow and Light

For its spring concert, the choir offers you Amidst Shadow and Light, a program inspired by the Spring equinox. This contemplative moment will transport you to a world of beauty and harmony with meditative works by Arvo Pärt ( 1935-     ) and Ola Gjeilo (1978-     ), among others. The choir will be accompanied for the occasion by pianist Carl Philippe Gionet and a string quartet, thus enriching the choral exploration of romantic and contemporary composers.


The composers

Arvo Pär, born in 1935 is an Estonian composer of classical and religious music. Since the late 1970s, Pärt has worked in a minimalist style that employs his self-invented compositional technique, tintinnabuli. Pärt's music is in part inspired by Gregorian chant. His most performed works include Fratres (1977), Spiegel im Spiegel (1978), and Für Alina (1976). Since 2010 Pärt has been the most performed living composer in the world.

Ola Gjeilo was born in Norway in 1978 and moved to the United States in 2001 to begin his composition studies at the Juilliard School in New York City, where he currently resides and works as a full-time composer.
