PASSION & LONELINESS
"Based upon a real incident. A woman named Sada Abe notoriously, if accidentally, killed her lover during the act of love itself. Fleeing the police, she cut off and took with her the very member that had connected them. She still had it when she was apprehended, and she was later convicted."
"Tintinnabuli is a compositional style created by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, introduced in his Für Alina (1976) and Spiegel im Spiegel (1978). This simple style was influenced by the composer's mystical experiences with chant music. The works often have a slow and meditative tempo, and a minimalist approach to both notation and performance."
