Arvo Pärt

Holy Minimalism Batman, it's Arvo Pärt

Born in Estonia in 1935 Arvo Pärt grew up under Soviet communism and was a student at the Tallin Conservatory.  He was alternately praised for his work and condemned for susceptibility to foreign influence by the Soviets before finally emigrating in 1980 to Vienna and then to Berlin.
