    Hidden order

    Something unfinished shimmers through the cracks of a fractured existence: Schubert’s Symphony in B minor, a work that throws up more riddles than certainties, already fired the imagination of his contemporaries. And even today the process of combining fragments to create a meaningful whole is fascinating to us, as the premiere of Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante in A major will confirm. In »Festina lente«, Pärt creates a prolation canon to illustrate the motto »more haste, less speed«.
