"Spiegel im Spiegel is a well-known example of Arvo Part's Tintinnabuli style and has been used in many films. Spiegel um Spiegel illustrates his creative principles: above a permanent flow of chords on the piano, the cello 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, stimulates reflection, prayer, or the desire for redemption." (Jurgen Kochel).

    I have had the pleasure of doing the first ever recording of this work for bassoon and piano, approved by Arvo Pärt personally. I have also played it dozens of times in recitals around the world. It is without a doubt amongst the most remarkable works of our time...

    , and it serves as an important milestone in modern music. The challenge of this work is to make it sound easy, beautiful, soulful, SIMPLE. I highly recommend this work for every bassoonist looking for perfection in sound production, search for different timbres, intonation, breathing support. It is best suited for an advanced player, whilst it can also be most beneficial to an aspiring young artist or amateur bassoonist. "Hearing you play this, it took me back to my child-hood..." is one of my favorite responses from one of my audience members. Enjoy! Martin Kuuskmann
