Happy Birthday Arvo Pärt - a special single by Goeyvaerts Stringtrio


On September 11th Arvo Pärt turns 80! A magnificent age for the greatest composer alive today!

Especially for this lovely occassion the Goeyvaerts String Trio recorded a single, which will be released on September 11th. The proceeds of this single will be used for a very good cause: Musicfund!

Goeyvaerts String Trio was awarded with a prestigious Edison Award last year, together with the singers Zsuzsi Tóth, Barnabás Hegyi and Olivier Berten, for their recording of Stabat Mater by Arvo Pärt and Simeron written by Ivan Moody.

This summer the trio and singers recorded two pieces bij Arvo Pärt: two lullabies which were arranged especially for stringtrio and three singers by composer Ivan Moody.  But the nice aspect in this story is that also Arvo Pärt himself was involved in this, because he gave some last minute changes and instructions by phone during the recording process! This was a great experience for all involved.

The trio found the occassion of Pärt's birthday a perfect time for this single with the proceeds for Musicfund, since it  strongly believes in the creed of this organisation: "Music as an instrument for development!”

On September 11th the single with the two lullabies will be available physically and digitally. When you buy the single the money will be well used for Musicfund! Thank you for your support!

The trio and singers will give a special Stabat Mater concert in St.Niklaas in Belgium on September 11th Pärt's birthday (in the St.Jozefkerk, 20.00 hours)!
