Exhibit by the Estonian Theatre and Music Museum "Arvo Pärt - Renowned and Unknown"

Museum of Estonians Abroad (VEMU)

Arvo Pärt is one of those composers in the world whose creative output has significantly changed the way we understand the nature of music. Since 1976, his unique tintinnabulicompositions have established a new musical paradigm and introduced an approach to composing that he is still using today. And, although there is no school that follows him, nor does he teach, a large part of the music of the second half of the 20th century has been strongly influenced by Pärt’s tintinnabulicompositions. 

The Estonian Theatre and Music Museum first put the exhibition together in 2005 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Arvo Pärt. The current exhibition is based on the updated version made in 2015.

The exhibition presents the most renowned Estonian composer and is a cultural cooperation project celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Republic in 2018.

The exhibit is on display Monday-Friday 10am-5pm, during events, and upon request.
