"Winter Landscape" by Caspar David Friedrich

"Winter Landscape" by Caspar David Friedrich

Today just seems like the perfect moment for ECM to release a new recording of works by the wintry Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.  Be sure to view the promotional performance video available at the record label’s website.

And here is a 1997 BBC interview with Pärt and, of all people, Björk…

Doesn’t this music fit well with Caspar David Friedrich‘s haunted, beautiful landscapes (as seen above)?
