Für Alina, by Arvo Pärt

[AUFTAKT: seminar for music students at the Estonian Music and Theatre Museum, 1 April 1999]

Beautifully said. His words speak to my soul.

2:20 – “every blade of grass would be as important as a flower.”

3:15 – “A blade of gras has the status of a flower.”

6:11 – “I have an idea of what I want to say. I am always looking for it. Sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it doesn’t come at all.”

Für Alina, played by Haskell Small

I love listening to the silence at the beginning and the end.
