Arvo Pärt (born September 11 1935 in Paide, Estonia), is an Estonian composer of classical music. Continuing struggles with Soviet officials led him to emigrate in 1980 with his wife and their two sons. Pärt lived first in Vienna, where he took Austrian citizenship; and then he re-located to Berlin where he still lives. He is known for compositions such as "Spiegel im Spiegel" (1978).
