An intensely haunting piece played to perfection. The bell-like piano chords that enter at 1:24 should remind everyone of the impact Pärt has had on the Hollywood film industry. In particular, compare this section to the trademark Thomas Newman “American Beauty” chordal sequences (also heard in his score for “Shawshank Redemption”). Pärt was there first: his was written in 1977. Enjoy. It’s a masterpiece.
