*2024 stock. Deluxe packaging* There have been other recordings of "Für Alina" and "Spiegel im Spiegel" but none like those on this disc, realized with the participation of the composer. Here Pärt, aided by exceptional interpreters, revisits those seminally important compositions which marked the birth of a new, "prismatic" period in his work, establishing a link between compositions embodying the fundamental traits of the "tintinnabuli style." Three interpretations of the duet ‘Spiegel im Spiegel’ (Mirror in the Mirror), for violin or cello and piano, become "formal pillars positioned before, between and after two solo renderings of ‘Für Alina’", the latter performed with interpretive freedom by Alexander Malter
