Oxford Keynotes

  • First book since 1997 on one of today's most widely performed, recorded, and acclaimed living composers
  • First book on Pärt's path-breaking tintinnabuli work
  • Draws from previously unexamined archival materials
  • Controversially claims that Pärt's tintinnabuli music is historically grounded in-and deeply indebted to-Soviet and Western modernist aesthetics and idioms
