The music of Gurdjieff/DeHartmann
is the result of an
extraordinary collaboration between G.I. Gurdjieff and the
Russian composer, Thomas de Hartmann. Gurdjieff traveled
for twenty years in the Middle East and
Central Asia to discover and develop the teaching
which now bears his name. In the 1920's, he and DeHartmann
worked together on the music included in this collection.
Thomas de Hartmann=Author
De Hartmann writes:
Mr. Gurdjieff generally
whistled or played on the piano with one finger a very
complicated kind of melody, as are all Eastern melodies,
although they seem at first to be monotonous. To grasp the
melody, to write it in European notation, required a kind of 'tour
de force'... Mr. Gurdjieff's music had great variety. The most
deeply moving was that which he remembered hearing in
remote temples during his Asian travels. Listening to this music,
one was touched to the depth of his being.
These are the only recordings available of Thomas de
Hartmann himself playing the music he composed with
This disc set includes six additional pieces and a talk by de
Hartmannn about Gurdjieff's view of the music.
