22-07-2014 Goeyvaerts String Trio named

We are delighted to announce that Gramophone Magazine has selected the Goeyvaert String Trio's latest record 'Stabat Mater' as 'Editor's Choice' in their August issue! The album includes Arvo Pärt's Stabat Mater as well as a compositon titled Simeron by British composer Ivan Moody, which was commissioned by the trio.

About the music
Arvo Pärt and Ivan Moody have both turned to Orthodox Christianity at some point in their lives and this has permeated the work of both of them in a particular way. Pärt’s Stabat Mater and Moody’s Simeron each refer in their own way to a truth that unfolds in their music – and specifically in these performances. The listener (whether Orthodox or not) will be affected by the particular tonal texture which, in Pärt’s case at least, far transcends the text and exposes a truth of human existence.
