Treasure Hunting # 8 : The Hunt is On

It’s been a long time since I took out my gun to go on a hunt. The hunt for music, that is. I think I kind of forgot this more or less series. But I need your help. Recently I stumbled upon a video of a danced duet including my favourite ballerina (Ekaterina Kondaurova, if you’d like to know). I immediately recognised the music as being Arvo Part’s work, but I couldn’t figure out what it was exactly. Even after using my high tech systems (Shazam, Google music recognise thing) I couldn’t find it. I’ve searched on YouTube for a while, but this piece of music seems to be hidden away.

So now I would like to ask your help. Do you recognise this? Do you know a way to find out what it is? Pretty please?

I think I have found the choreographer on Facebook, but I find it a bit weird to send him a message asking what that particular piece is. He’s Russian though, so it would be good to send him something in Russian. Still I’d first like to try it this way. The last time I asked your help, it worked, so I have good hope that this time you will hunt the treasure for me.

The music I am searching for starts at 2:03 and ends at 7:24. Meanwhile you can watch the interesting pas de deux. It’s a good pas de deux if you ask me – especially with such music!

  1. No idea I’m afraid although it does sound a bit like some of the music in the Halo games…!

    Them dancers contort themselves in all kinds of ways, it’s freaky.

    • In that case it seems that Halo games uses nice music πŸ˜€

      They are very flexible, but they are from one of the best ballet compnaies in the world, so it comes as no surprise.

  6. I think i’ve got it…..Arvo Part Silouans Song

    Kinda reminds me of the music from the tudors. Is this is?

    • Forget the link, it sucks, it’s a playlist so you can delete it lol Just Youtube Arvo Part Silouans Song lol

      • OMFG. I KNEW it sounded like Trisagion, one of my dearest Arvo Part pieces. How come I couldn’t come up with reading the names on that cover?

        Oh my, I will now declare my eternal love and gratefulness to you. YOU ARE THE BEST. How did you find it?

      • Translated the text from you tube in Google, it just gave the arvo bit. Put his name I’m YouTube and hit lucky with the second song, nothing fancy I’m afraid lol
