The Best Classical Music Recordings of 2016

PÄRT: ‘KANON POKAJANEN’ Cappella Amsterdam; Daniel Reuss, conductor (Harmonia Mundi). Arvo Pärt’s magnum opus, the “Kanon Pokajanen” (“Canon of Repentance,” 1998), retains the language of its Eastern Orthodox sources, Church Slavonic, and follows Orthodox tradition in avoiding instruments, though it is not intended for church use. It is a contemplative concert work — utterly mesmerizing, despite modern-leaning harmonies — and enchanting. 
James R. Oestrich The New York Times
