Spiegel im Spiegel


Spiegel im Spiegel is a piece of music written by Arvo Pärt in 1978, just prior to his departure from Estonia. The piece is in the tintinnabular style of composition, wherein a melodic voice, operating over diatonic scales, and tintinnabular voice, operating within a triad on the tonic, accompany each other. It is about ten minutes long.

The piece was originally written for a single piano and violin - though the violin has often been replaced with either a cello or a viola. Versions also exist for double bass, clarinet, horn, flute and percussion. The piece is musically minimal, yet produces a serene tranquility.



Arvo Pärt es un compositor estonio. Nació el 11 de septiembre de 1935 en Paide (Estonia). Se le identifica con la música minimalista y más específicamente con el «minimalismo sacro». Es considerado un pionero en ese estilo, como sus contemporáneos Henryk Górecki y John Tavener.
