Arvo Pärt at Eighty

September 11, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

On the occasion of Arvo Pärt’s eightieth birthday, the Met toasts the composer’s health and long life with a concert of his music led by Joel Sachs—world-renowned advocate for the newest of music, who was an important early champion of Pärt’s indelible voice in the West—directing members of the New Juilliard Ensemble. The program culminates with New York City Ballet Principals Amar Ramasar and Rebecca Krohn performing Christopher Wheeldon’s “wondrous” (New York Times) Liturgy, set to Pärt’s Fratres.

This performance is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Liturgical Textiles of the Post-Byzantine World, on view August 3–November 1, 2015.
