Finally he came up with his self-developed style of composing which this particular piano piece represents. It is a very simple style based on two voices and it was inspired by his mystical experiences with chant music.

 

Per request here are two examples of performances that don't really do it for me. In the description for the first one the person does however state that he was only playing the piece for the second time and apologizes if it feels like he doesn't quite "feel" the song yet. The second video is a bit better, but still the playing feels too mechanical and I feel a disconnection to the music.

 

  

 

Oh, thank you for providing examples - I'm going to listen to each video using k812 reference headphones to see if more detail can be heard and I'll have your comments in mind also and I'll post my thoughts if you have any interest, though I don't want to bore or burden you.

 

Interesting brief background of Pärt, he seems quite introverted, but clearly is a character with your mention of his mystical experiences through chant music, but clearly a spiritual guy too :D

 

This relates to the first video you posted of this guy where he is talking to music students - he clearly connects or makes effort to emotionally connect himself to each note, rather than just being mechanically proficient but lacking soul, though he did say that sometimes nothing happens (I interpret this as not emotionally feeling connected to the music and other times he does connect as though this process in involuntary?)

Did Noel Gallagher rip off The Beatles, T Rex, and even a Coca Cola commercial from the 70's?

Hell yeah and Oasis ended paying off a suit or two, I frankly don't care. 

This is the best Oasis album and one of the best debut albums of all time.

The remaster includes live cuts and alternate takes as per usual, but these extras are exceptional.

Some of the extras are better than the ones that made it on the album, the alternate version of "Columbia" features a nasty Noel Gallagher guitar solo, I can only imagine Liam having an issue with that cut.

 

The brothers are a modern day version of The Kinks sibling craziness, bury the hatchet hit the road and make lots of money, please.
