Boomkat Product Review:
It is no coincidence that Arvo Part ended up writing music for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The City of Angels seems to be totally appropriate to Part's spiritually inclined compositions, and 'Symphony No.4' came about as Part was working in a church containing a prayer to a guardian angel. The link seemed too perfect to pass up, and Part premiered this piece in 2009 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, almost forty years after 'Symphony No.3'. Of course the music itself is as perfect as one would imagine, Part rarely turns in sub-standard material and the performance here, along with the incredibly precise recording simply has to be heard to be believed. Part all too often gets written up as being 'cinematic' or 'post classical', and although his music has been a key, if not THE key influence for many post classical and electronic producers, it will always stand apart from that scene. The composer is an original, and the music he produces bears a mark impossible to recreate, the subtle complexity of his writing, combined with his weathered instrumental knowhow makes these pieces irresistible in their near-sublime melancholy. This is music to listen to as you dissolve into a dreamless sleep; gorgeous, affecting and simply unmissable.
