    Arvo Pärt Centre

    The Arvo Pärt Centre combines the composer’s personal archive with an information and music centre. It is an open meeting place for musicians, researchers, music lovers and anyone interested in Arvo Pärt’s music and world of ideas. The centre regularly hosts concerts and events. 

    The core of the Arvo Pärt Centre is the archive, which is comprised of information and documents related to the composer’s work in both physical and digital formats. The centre also features a concert hall, exhibition space and seminar rooms. 

    The family of the composer founded the Arvo Pärt Centre in 2010. The building’s architects are Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano of the Spanish architecture bureau Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos.

    The centre is located in a picturesque setting in Laulasmaa, 35 kilometres from Tallinn. When visiting, it is useful to keep in my mind that the centre is connected to the parking area via a small, unpaved forest road.

      I recommend everyone to visit this place - in the middle of forest there is an architectural masterpiece. Definitely borrow the audio guides (they are free, you just leave your ID there) you can... Read more comments
