Adam's Passion by Arvo Pärt and Robert Wilson (DVD)
24.99

Adam’s Passion is the moving first collaboration between two “masters of slow motion who harmonize perfectly with each other” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). In the spectacular setting of a former submarine factory, American director and universal artist Robert Wilson created a poetic visual world in which the mystical musical language of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt could cast its meditative spell. Three of Pärt’s major works—Adam’s Lament, Tabula rasa, and Miserere, as well as Sequentia, a new work dedicated to Robert Wilson and composed especially for this production—were brought together using light, space, and movement to create a tightly-woven gesamtkunstwerk in which the artistic visions of these two great artists mirror each other.

The Lost Paradise, a film by Günter Atteln about Adam's Passion by Arvo Pärt and Robert Wilson (DVD)
24.99

He is the most performed contemporary composer in the world. And yet he rarely ventures out in public, prefers to keep quiet about his music, feels at home in the forests of Estonia and generates therewith—perhaps involuntarily—the impression of a recluse, which is attributed to him again and again: Arvo Pärt. In The Lost Paradise, Günter Atteln followed him over a period of one year in his native Estonia, to Japan and the Vatican. The documentary is framed by the stage production of Adam’s Passion, a music theater piece based on the biblical story of the fall of Adam featuring three key works by Arvo Pärt. Robert Wilson brought this work to the stage in a former submarine factory in Tallinn. Tracing their creative process, the film offers rare and personal insights into the worlds of two of the most fascinating personalities in the international arts and music scene.
