    Default Name that tune in . . .

    Does anybody here recognize this piece of music at all? The whole piece is approximately ten to eleven minutes long. I remember it’s title is not in English, and is two words (or, more accurately, the same word repeated). If anyone can enlighten me further, it would be very much appreciated thanks.

    I think it's by Arvo Part, but I'm not 100% sure. I think I heard it once at a friends house. I distinctly remember the low "F" throughout it.

    As for the name of the piece, I don't know.

    I just found a link to his website. Try your luck on the forum over there and report back. I'm curious if I was right!

    OK, if it's by Part like I think it is, it's called "Passacaglia" (2003), which is his only work for Violin and Piano.

    Thanks for your help, cjr3559. You’re a hundred per cent correct with the composer, it is Arvo Pärt. As for the piece itself, it’s called “Spiegel im Spiegel,” written in 1978 for violin or cello and piano.

    Thanks again for the lead – very helpful indeed.

    My pleasure! Glad I could help.

    Though I wonder why that work isn't listed on the main page of his website? Hmm.

    Yes, curiouser and curiouser. Wikipedia have a whole page dedicated to this piece (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiegel_im_Spiegel).
