Audio Post - Arvo Pärt, Variations for the Healing of Arinushka

Fast Forward

Marco Bordogni was born in 1788. Bach and Telemann were both born about 100 years before in 1685 and 1681, respectively. And Thomas Tallis was born 180 years before them.

Suffice it to say, the musical worldview expressed on the recordings on this blog has not been exactly "contemporary". As a counterweight to the powdered-wiggery I've offered to this point, here is my own arrangement of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt's (b.1935) "Variations for the Healing of Arinushka" (1977). While it often seems that there's very little that's truly "new" in the world, I'll venture to say this this is the first euphonium recording of this piece...on YouTube...this month.
