A new building for the Arvo Pärt Centre will be open for public on October 17, 2018. Estelon has had the honour to partner with the Centre to provide the visitors with a unique listening experience. The Estelon speakers will be connected with Devialet Expert amplifiers.
The architects of the new building for the Arvo Pärt Centre are Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano from the Spanish architecture firm NietoSobejano Arquitectos, S.L.P, whose work “Tabula” was declared winner of the 2014 international architectural competition. According to the architects, the building was inspired by Arvo Pärt’s music, and it aimed to find a balance between modern architecture and its surrounding natural environment.
Arvo Pärt (1935) is one of those composers whose creative output has significantly changed the way we understand the nature of music. Today, he is known for his unique tintinnabuli style, and although his earlier modernist works are perhaps less known to wider audiences, his entire oeuvre has shifted our perception of music. Since 2010 Pärt has been the most performed living composer in the world.
