The Voyage Within. The music of G.I. Gurdjieff and T. De Hartmann. Ugo Bonessi, piano
These digital recordings are the fruit of personal research on the part of the pianist, Ugo Bonessi, carried out over long years and in close contact with transmitters of the Gurdjieff teaching and with other musicians dedicated to the same research.
They represent a purely arbitrary selection, tracing a journey of the mind and heart through some of the great collections of Gurdjieff and DeHartmann’s music, drawn from Journey to inaccessible places, Sacred Hymns, Asian songs and rhythms.
Ugo Bonessi was born in Rome in 1961. For over a decade, he has devoted himself to the study and performing of Gurdjieff/ DeHartmann’s music. He has also performed for classes of Movements and Sacred Dances connected to Gurdjieff study groups in Europe.
