Dr. Peter Bouteneff
Arvo Pärt and the Musical Translation of Sacred Text
Author of Arvo Pärt: Out of Silence
Renowned Pärt scholar and theologian Dr. Peter Bouteneff directs the Arvo Pärt Project at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, an in-depth endeavor involving concerts, lectures and publications. His most recent book is Arvo Pärt: Out of Silence, which has been hailed as “a triumph,” “a game-changer for Pärt scholarship,” and “a must-read for any listener or performer of Pärt’s music.”
He will give a one-hour talk with time for Q&A, and will be available to sign copies of his new book after the lecture.
This lecture takes place as part of the Arvo Pärt Festival, Feb. 9-12, 2017, presented by Cappella Romana.
