I can't remember how I ended up listening to this masterpiece by Arvo Pärt, - Estonian composer, - recorded in 1977, released on vinyl in 1984.
"Scored for two violins, string orchestra, and prepared piano.", it embodies musically the tragedy itself, through a minimal pattern of classical partiture: it is disarming, haunting and utterly poignant. Cyclic and growing. Like a blood stain turning into a ruby lake. And you, going down deep into this symphonic de prufundis. Tearing apart.
Four movements, for states of petrification. I can't think of anything more beautiful in this moment in Music. For sure, it will wipe out that idiot smile off your face, and elevate your soul.
