Minimalism at it's very best. This is thoroughly modern music that doesn't complely forsake its past. A remarkable achievement.

"Fratres" and "Tabula rasa" are the MVP's here, and the latter is simply the most beautiful classical piece ever composed. The title piece is an emotionally raw outpouring of catharsis and stuns with its deceptively simple composition style. A must-hear for anyone interested in classical music, its quality and place in the musical canon are indisputable.

Haunting minimalism. There are just a few minimalist pieces that stick out above the rest and this is the best of them.

This is just too sublime and awesome, so I can't even believe if this really exists

“I have discovered that it is enough when a single note is beautifully played. This one note, or a silent beat, or a moment of silence, comforts me. I work with very few elements - with one voice, two voices. I build with primitive materials - with the triad, with one specific tonality. The three notes of a triad are like bells and that is why I call it tintinnabulation”- Arvo Pärt

Judging by the number of charts Tabula Rasa appears on here, one might think it's the greatest piece of classical music ever made. I can assure you it's not, not by a long shot, though it is quite nice.
