In the organizer's words:

Music is more than pleasant sound: already in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach one gets the feeling that eternal harmony is at work in the artful entanglements of the melodies, a universal law of beauty. This can be experienced particularly clearly in the "Art of the Fugue" - a celebration of musical mathematics in which the music shines with the rigor of a crystal. Arvo Pärt is considered a modern successor to Bach: with his ascetic, yet highly concentrated works, the Estonian-born composer created a tonal world of tranquility and subtle tensions that has made him a cult figure in the New Age movement.
