Spiegel Im Spiegel (Alto Flute and Piano)
Spiegel Im Spiegel (Alto Flute and Piano) by Arvo Part (b. 1935), Published by Universal Editions, Distributed by Theodore Presser, Includes Alto Flute part and piano score.
Spiegel im Spiegel is a well-known example of Arvo Part's Tintinnabuli style and has been used in many films. Spiegel im Spiegel illustrates his creative principles: above a permanent flow of chords on the piano, the alto flute unfolds a cantilena in long note values, which grows out of succinct steps. This cantilena spins out sweeping, chorale-like arches and spreads itself out more and more. It thus gives rise to a new architectonic configuration which, like a mediation chapel, stimulaties reflection, prayer, or the desire for redemption.
