Kanon Pokajanen (1997) is one of Arvo Pärt's unqualified masterpieces—and a work of sustained inner unity and immense cumulative force. Performed by the ensemble that generated its definitive recording on ECM in 1998, the piece is staged in the unforgettable setting of The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing.

This concert is a collaboration between the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Arvo Pärt Project at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary.
