Arvo Part: Retrospective
Charles Hazlewood joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to explore the profoundly spiritual music of Estonian composer Arvo Part.
Much of his work is underpinned by rigorous mathematical principles. Charles and the orchestra explore these and other techniques in three works: Collage on BACH, Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten and Silouans Song.
