In considering the complete musical works of Gurdjieff/de Hartmann, we find in this volume undoubtedly the most profound reflection of Gurdjieff the Master. Although quite varied in form and somewhat in style, these pieces all share the unmistakable mark of the depth of his inner feeling and sensitivity.
The recordings correspond to sheet music volumes of the same name. These three CDs are part of a four volume series of compact discs that correspond to a four volume series of books of sheet music/manuscript music issued by Wergo and Schott Music in Mainz, Germany. The four volume series’ of CDs and books is the most comprehensive collection of recordings and manuscript music available for the Gurdjieff/de Hartmann music.
The Manuscript Music/Sheet Music book editions are edited by Linda Daniel-Spitz, Charles Ketcham, and Laurence Rosenthal.
Preface, Introduction and Notes in English, French and German. Illustrated with facsimiles of de Hartmann’s rough drafts.
