This one note, or a moment of silence, comforts me. I work with very few elements – with one voice, with two voices. I build with the most. Arvo Part’s Fratres and his. Tintinnabuli Technique.

That is fratree the remainder of this article will focus on. Traces of this perfect thing appear in many guises — and everything that is unimportant falls away. I’ve been listening – 3 times now! What is it, this one thing, and how do I find my way to it? I’m not particularly interested in SIDs or in classical music rendered with computers or anything, but you have created something really special here.
I’m working on analyzing fratres as well, but I’m looking at the violin version. Of course, I don’t know that for a fact, and again I don’t mean to criticize your analysis–only to point out that perhaps Part was thinking in “math,” from which you have distilled an interesting “equation.
Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres” in Eight Versions – The Listeners’ Club
Hi, this page is really helpful – thanks. Many people who listen to Fratres find it repetitive or even boring at first. Thanks for this webpage!!! How does it start? In any case you can listen that version here on Youtube http: Commissioned by Salzburger Festspiele In order to understand the algorithm behind Fratres, we just need to figure out how to form the eight chords that build up each segment half.
Much like the international date line in the pacific ocean, we add a seam, where the notes get fratrres one octave. Do you know something about the religious sense? Both these journeys begin at the indicated note, e. I think that the “circular” step-wise motion is an effect, not a cause.
Each sequence consists of eight different chords played in three different orders let’s call them bars. Then, if they are the inquisitive, puzzle-solving type of person, they will try to understand the patterns rationally as well.
The ethereal, timeless sound of this whole piece is partly due to the fact that it lingers somewhere in between A minor and A major. Thank you so much. I’ll be playing it in a concert and would like to include this information in my programme notes.
I see it is also your favorite piece. I’ve never come across this in my readings about Part and I am very curious, frattres being one of my favorite pieces to listen to and play.
Ppart technically demanding part of the solo instrument was added to the recurring three-part theme as a new layer, placing even more emphasis on the contrast between the changing and constant elements. Alas, three doesn’t divide seven, so we’re forced to have some sort of assymmetry in this circle.
Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres” in Eight Versions
I just want to extend my heartfelt thanks for this beautiful rendition of Fratres. What is it, this one thing, and how do I find my way to it? Thank you for this page! Just wondering, your thoughts appreciated. And that is why I call it tintinnabulation.
Arvo Pärt: Fratres
Throughout the composition we can hear a recurrent theme that starts each time in a different octave. Horizontally, ten refuges separate nine segments. But – in the diagram for the middle voice, wouldn’t arov be one less ‘A’ in the very top of the circle – otherwise the falling half of the first segment would be A-A for the middle voice, when reading clockwise?
Thus, in the first bar we get: I’m trying to figure this out using your process. You are completely awesome.
Fratres – Wikipedia
The three notes of a triad are like bells. This basically means that some voices are restricted to playing notes from a particular triad in Fratres this is the A minor triadwhile other voices play melodies. If we did that, then the middle voice would end up playing C natural at the same time as another voice would be playing C sharp.
