A fascinating insight into Pärt's tintinnabuli

In the illuminating video below, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars perform sections from their upcoming recording of Arvo Pärt's music, called 'Tintinnabuli' (due for release on March 2), to explain how Pärt was inspired by the overtone series created when a bell is struck to forge his unique and immediately recognisable style.

Introducing the album, which includes Pärt's Magnificat, Triodion and I am the true vine, Phillips says, 'It is with great pleasure that we present our tribute to Arvo Pärt in his 80th year. Tintinnabuli (from the Latin for ‘bell’) is the compositional style created by Arvo Pärt which informs every work on this recording. In all my searchings for inspiring contemporary music I have not come across anyone to rival him.'
