Arvo Pärt in the Marketplace
Journal / Book Title
Cambridge Companion to Arvo Pärt
Essay about the historical themes of Pärt’s marketable identity and their relationship to current politics and his reception. I explore the language of Pärt’s music in the marketplace, which has broadened from assertions of religiosity and autonomy in conventional recorded formats, to more public and creative ownership in film media as an aesthetic agent of something unattainable, forgotten or dispossessed. Research shows that this process has been characterized as a move from carefully controlled market share to a broad and more inclusive engagement that is no longer governed by proprietary claims.
