Tabula rasa, Pärt’s 1977 breakthrough piece, is written in the style that has made him the most played living composer of the twenty-first century. Viola player Gidon Kremer, to whom the piece is dedicated, describes Tabula rasa as a statement of silence, a manifesto of concentration on important things. Kremer indicates that Tabula rasa has changed his life.
