"More is less" is the motto of music by Estonian composter Arvo Pärt (1935). He started out writing 12-tone music but ventured more into the past after a crisis. Studying the middle ages and renaissance caused a turn-around in his idiom. And he converted to the Russian-Orthodox church. His ensuing, strong tendency for religious music, however, caused some conflicts with the Soviet authorities.

He moved to the West in 1980 and started to compose more and more minimalistically. Simple harmonies, sometimes with some dissonances and imitations of bells. His 'Seven Magnificat Antiphones' came to life in 1988. Barren, sober music with but an enormous impact, most of all expressing wonder and humility. 

To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!

Niet zwaar gelovig, kwam Tsjaikovski toch graag in de kerk. ‘Ik ben erg dol op het avondgebed. Er gaat niets boven zo’n zaterdagavond: je gaat een oude kerk binnen, staat in het halfdonker temidden van de wierook en je denkt diep na over de eeuwige vragen: “Waarvoor, wanneer, waarheen en waarom?” En dan word je ineens opgeschrikt door het koor, een heerlijke ervaring’. Daarom heeft hij zich in 1878 gewaagd aan kerkmuziek. En zo ontstond op. 41. Maar woedende orthodoxe kerkvorsten protesteerden tegen kerkmuziek in de concertzaal, waar de première plaatsvond, met - stel je voor - applaus. En deden het stuk in de ban.
