About the album

The online crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, made it possible for Goeyvaerts String Trio to realise their most recent project. With support from around the world, the result was a celebrated and critically acclaimed recording of music by Arvo Pärt and Ivan Moody. Arvo Pärt’s 80th anniversary was the perfect opportunity to follow up this special project, with a new recording featuring two of Pärt’s lullabies, arranged by Moody.

The trio would like to dedicate these two miniatures to a good cause and have decided to support Music Fund. “We believe in their motto: Music as an instrument for development!”, says the Trio.

The Goeyvaerts String Trio has been able to realize so many of their dreams already, and hopes that many others will have this same opportunity.
Twee wiegeliedjes van Pärt
Dankzij het online crowdfunding platform Kickstarter kon het Goeyvaerts Strijktrio dit recente album verwezenlijken. Het was een speciale uitgave waarbij de winst werd opgedragen aan het internationale Music Fund, een fonds dat investereert in het gebruik van muziekeducatie als instrument voor ontwikkeling. Het resultaat was een bijzondere opname van twee wiegeliedjes van Arvo Pärt in een arrangement van Ivan Moody. De muziek is sereen en minimalistisch, maar zeer teder en hartverwarmend.

Het Goeyvaerts Strijktrio is in 1997 opgericht door violiste Kristien Roels, altviolist Kris Matthynssens en cellist Pieter Stas met als doel uitsluitend 20e en 21e-eeuwse repertoire uit te voeren. Het trio ontleent zijn naam aan de Belgische componist Karel Goeyvaerts, die een belangrijke rol speelde bij de ontwikkelingen binnen de Europese nieuwe muziek. Het ensemble speelt niet alleen bestaand werk maar is ook actief met opdrachten voor nieuwe strijktrio’s.

Tijdens de opnames was Arvo Pärt zelf betrokken bij de uitvoering van dit bijzondere trio.
Durch ihre erfolgreiche Kampagne bei Kickstarter war es für Goeyvaerts String Trio möglich, ihr letztes Projekt, die Einspielung des Stabat Mater von Arvo Pärt, zu realisieren. Diese Einspielung hat weltweit großen Anklang gefunden und begeisterte Kritiken geerntet. So war es keine Frage zum 80. Geburstag von Arvo Pärt ein besonderes Projekt zu starten: die Aufnahme von zwei Schlafliedern Pärts, arrangiert von Ivan Moody.

Das Trio möchte diese Stücke dem guten Zweck widmen und hat sich dazu entschieden den Music Fund zu unterstützen. "Wir glauben an das Motto der Organisation: Musik ist ein Instrument des Fortschritts." so das Trio. Das Goeyvaerts String Trio konnte bereits einige seiner eigenen Träume realisieren und hofft, dass hiermit auch andere die Gelegenheit dazu bekommen.
Fondato nel 1997, il Goeyvaerts String Trio si dedica esclusivamente al repertorio del ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo. Esso prende il nome dal compositore fiammingo Karel Goeyvaerts (1923-1993), che ha giocato un ruolo chiave nei fondamentali cambiamenti della nuova musica europea.
La realizzazione del più recente progetto discografico del Goeyvaerts String Trio è stata resa possibile grazie a Kickstarte, la piattaforma di raccolta fondi online. L’ottantesimo compleanno di Arvo Pärt è sembrata un’ottima occasione per concretizzare questo progetto speciale, con una nuova registrazione contenente due ninnenanne di Pärt, nell’arrangiamento di Ivan Moody.
Il trio vuole dedicare queste due miniature ad una buona causa e ha deciso quindi di sostenere Music Fund. «Crediamo nel loro motto: la Musica come strumento per lo sviluppo!», dichiarano.

The Goeyvaerts String Trio was founded in 1997 and focuses exclusively on 20th- and 21st-century repertoire. It owes its name to the late Flemish composer Karel Goeyvaerts (1923-1993) who played a key role in the fundamental changes in European new music. The programmes performed by this trio are chiefly constructed around the extensive and extraordinary repertoire for string trio, supplemented by new works by Belgian composers.

In addition, the musicians of the Goeyvaerts String Trio are collaborating with art historian Stef van Bellingen on a project entitled ‘Klankkleuren’ (Sound colours), in which the relationships between music and the plastic arts are explored, using comparative parameters. The Goeyvaerts String Trio was awarded the 'Trofee Fuga 2003', a prize given annually by the Union of Belgian Composers for their unflagging dedication to the national repertoire.

As a trio they also try to perform new music in an adequately informed way, collaborating with composers such as Peter Swinnen, Giya Kancheli and performers such as Alexander Ivashkin (cellist and biographer of Alfred Schnittke), Henk Guittart (Schoenberg Quartet).
