Part

1986 EMi. Discovered 1986 Mar. 5 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named for Arvo Part (1935- ), Estonian-born composer. Until 1968, Part composed mainly serially. Since that year his music has evolved into what he terms a "tintinnabular" style, which is much influenced by medieval plainsong and organum. The calmness and linear clarity of the composer's recent music, which is often compared to that of Benjamin Britten {see planet (4079)}, have much affected the discoverer. (M 16593)
