  • The music that spoke for itself
    after the performance Kaljuste said he considers it his mission to see Arvo Part s new compositions performed long into the future As a conductor of Arvo Part s music Kaljuste feels a strong connection to his compatriot If you live in the same country and on the same street and in the same house with the composer he says You are really close to all that Arvo Part is doing In the work for those who have not yet listened to this sublime piece Part expresses his affinity with both the saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church and for its mystics The text of work is based on poetic lamentations of St Silouan a monk on Mount Athos in Greece It is a work which describes Adam s anguish his pain and grief of having been expelled and banished from paradise For Part the figure of Adam represents humankind in its entirety and each individual person alike irrespective of time epochs social strata and confession Adam is all of us who bear his legacy This Total Adam has been suffering and lamenting for thousands of years on Earth Adam himself our primal father foresaw the human tragedy and experienced it as his personal guilt He has suffered all human cataclysms unto the depths of despair Arvo Part has stated in the past Adam s Lament was a distinctive work of simplicity contrasting between moments of monumentally powerful outbursts and then moments of tenderly fragile abrupt meditative silence Part s world has been ensconced in deep spirituality stillness and meditation which is reflected in his musical language For the past 30 years the composer has exclusively delved into and worked with prominently religious sacred texts which has deservedly built him a reputation of being this era s leading religious composer Arvo Part is reminiscent of J S Bach who has sometimes been called the Fifth Evangelist For Part too faith and music are so closely bound together that they become a meditation or a proclamation of the Gospel said Jana Jeruma Grinberga the chaplain at St Saviour s Anglican Church in Riga If this iconic extravagantly bearded man s music represents a more approachable end of modern composition then Arvo Part himself as a man is characterised by his reclusiveness and unapproachability We can only respect Arvo Part s decision of not wanting to speak said Kaljuste As his son Michael Part who is the Director of the Arvo Part Centre informed The Baltic Times Arvo Part no longer gives interviews My father will not be able to give any interviews anymore says the younger Part As this is a joint family decision and my involvement in this interview would directly affect my father I would kindly ask not to participate myself Indra Jogis also from the Arvo Part Centre stated Arvo Part has given only very few interviews in the past and if so it had caused him a considerable effort as he does not like to speak so

  • Analyst: Lithuania’s parties jostle for support as election nears
    party and make it to the top I would doubt whether it is possible but there might be a player in the race who will chip away a chunk of the SD electorate The Parliament apparently does not want any more new players in the election next year Is it not therefore a fresh decision to disallow societal movements from taking part in the parliamentary election Before I answer this I want to underline that no party has ever managed to win consecutive Seimas elections in Lithuania What we ve seen in the past is strong retrospective voting against those in power But as now the economic situation is improving and this is supported by European Social Research preliminary data that I took a glimpse at I would not be very surprised if the Social Democrats were to retain high ratings until the election Still they do not guarantee the party results enabling it to form a new Coalition To go back to your question I think that following the general primaries to local Councils last March many new societal movements have emerged and many traditional parties weakened as a result Not surprisingly the Seimas does not want to see the parties getting weaker on the parliamentarian level and intends to put an end to societal committees Seimas aspirations Now it remains to be seen how many independent candidates will manage to win Seimas seats in single mandate electoral constituencies Which parties are likely to rake up the votes that new societal committees would have possibly gotten in the election It is very hard to tell as the votes are so eclectic Reliable research shows that in Lithuania around 50 percent of Lithuanians still do not have a clear political identity Political behavior is more predictable in Estonia for example The situation in Latvia is even worse than in Lithuania But in Lithuania unlike in Latvia the factors of ethnical identity and geopolitics are not so important The political identity of the other 50 percent is also not very strong I d say Only the Conservatives electorate is consistent and strong as the Liberals are just raising their electorate Social Democrats electoral base is strong too but it is not as solid as the Conservatives I believe Meanwhile the Labor and Order and Justice Party s electorate is very shaky depending on many consequences The Seimas is apparently willing to pave the way for e voting Do you see it as a chance for Liberals To some extent yes But on the other hand there is no research done on how e voting will impact the turnout But as I said the parties which boast younger voters stand a better chance with the introduction of e voting I d say that other parties like Social Democrats for example also hope that it will play into their hands Their delegated Interior Minister Juozas Bernatonis L J has done quite some work as to how to change the country s election system
