TV footage of Arvo Pärt’s concerts from 1998 at the Dominican Church in Poznań. The composed classicist interior has been enlivened by a scenographer with a simple installation made of vertically hanging ropes and mysteriously lighted by candles. Thus, a stage was created for Bornus Consort featuring soloists Anna Mikołajczyk and Robert Lawaty conducted by Marcin Bornus-Szczyciński and Młoda Filharmonia conducted by Marcin Sempoliński. The musicians joined forces to perform such masterpieces of Pärt’s as Tabula Rasa, De Profundis and Miserere – the last one sounded particularly beautiful on this stage. At first the composer remains quite reserved, despite the extensive line-up: a clarinet solo, delicate strikes on the kettledrum, a quiet choir. Only in Dies Irae does it all explode and reveal the frailty of the world around us.
