Spiegel im Spiegel (Mirror in the Mirror)
Up 5. Highest ever position since entering the chart in 2000. Pärt is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder
The Estonian composer Arvo Pärt is an extraordinarily reclusive yet successful musician. Worldwide, his music is among the most frequently performed of all contemporary composers and yet he rarely, if ever, seeks any kind of limelight or recognition. In many ways, Pärt's serene work for violin and piano Spiegel im Spiegel is a perfect musical reflection of the composer's own character.
Translated as 'Mirror in the Mirror', Spiegel im Spiegel is enduringly popular for the calm, still environment it inhabits, in a world that is so often much more noisy and frantic.
