24 Preludes for a Fugue is the first authorized documentary about prominent composer Arvo Pärt to be released on DVD. A portrait made of precious moments recorded during three prolific years of the composer’s life, the film features rehearsals, premieres, seminars, meetings and recollections.

The film  is enhanced by excerpts from major musical works such as  "Tabula Rasa", "Passio", "Fratres", "Orient & Occident", "Cecilia, vergine romana" and "Como cierva sedienta".
