Festival Description

RTÉ will host a celebration of Arvo Pärt, one of the most famous living composers, at the RTE Living Music Festival 2008, taking place in Dublin in February. Pärt has accepted RTÉ’s invitation to attend, on what will be his first visit to Ireland. The festival is sponsored by IMRO, the Irish Music Rights Organization, and the artistic director is leading Scottish composer James MacMillian. The three-day festival fetaures a wide selection of music representing the breadth of Pärt’s distinguished musical career, a new education project led by animateur Paul Rissman, and a composition seminar led by Ivan Moody, with Arvo Pärt and James MacMillian in attendance.
