Tabula Rasa is a musical composition written in 1977 by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. The piece contains two movements, Ludus and Silentium, and is a double concerto for two solo violins, prepared piano, and chamber orchestra. In 1968, Arvo Pärt fell publicly silent and entered a period of artistic reorientation. During this period, he developed his tintinnabuli style of composition, which pairs two voices, one playing the notes of a scale Melodic Voice. The 1984 ECM album Tabula Rasa was the vehicle that introduced the revolutionary music of Arvo Pärt to audiences outside Eastern Europe and initiated what was to become one of the most extraordinary musical careers of the late 20th century. Like many of the first generation American minimalists, he limited himself to diatonic harmonies and generated pieces by setting processes in motion, but the radical simplicity he achieved was the result of religious contemplation that was at least as, if not more, formative than his quest for a new musical aesthetic.
