Arvo Pärt – Creative Chair 2020/21

«Arvo Pärt is a living legend. The idea of having him here as Creative Chair is not only to do with the fact that he is Estonian, that he is above all a magnificent composer, one of the last remaining giants.» Paavo Jävi

«Es gibt Konstellationen, die einen Komponisten glücklich machen. Eine derartige Konstellation – mit Paavo Järvi und dem Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich – finde ich in Ihrem Hause vor», so Arvo Pärt über die Wahl Paavo Järvis als Chefdirigent und Music Director (Foto: Gaëtan Bally).

We live in a very noisy time, and everything noisy seems to want to attract attention, also in music. In contrast, Pärt's music – like himself – has a certain spirituality, without telling us how or what to believe in.
