Arvo Pärt is a composer whose creative output has significantly changed the way we understand the nature of music.
To honour the composer in his 80th year of life, Universal Edition will be collecting performance dates, reviews, CD releases and more on a dedicated blog. We are paying tribute to Arvo by including his beautiful piano piece, Für Anna Maria, on our syllabus. The class is open to pianists playing at a novice/intermediate level – all ages welcome. The class is not suitable for pianists that have progressed beyond Grade 5 level.
The class will be adjudicated by pianist, piano teacher and blogger Frances Wilson. Frances discusses the piece and why we have chosen this piece for the festival.
