Boomkat Product Review:
As anyone who has visited Tate Modern will testify (and that's just about everyman and his dog); the cavernous expanse of the Turbine Hall is akin to a secular Cathedral, with the object of adoration the intangible entity of 'art'. It therefore seems entirely fitting that Arvo Pärt was approached by artist Anish Kapoor to provide aural accompaniment for his immense 'Marsyas' sculpture which was commissioned as part of a series of instillations to fill this potentially all-consuming space. Pärt has a keen understanding of the vastness of multi-layered music and saw in Kapoor's breathtaking piece a similar intimidation in which the individual is dwarfed by "the pain and hopelessness of this world". If you're staring to flag at this point; don't, because the compositions coaxed from this potentially suffocating view-point are teeth-achingly poignant. Opening with a vast choir, Pärt then leads the listener through vaulted corridors of sublime grandiose (provided by the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart), all the while providing a tangible focal point in the shape of Alexei Lubimov's solo piano. Fluid yet coarse and grand yet intimate, 'Lamenate' revels in stark contrasts that can't fail to impress as you buffet between moments of savage intensity and tracts of piquant precision. Amazing music from one of the most important composers of our age.
