Single CD featuring 24 of the Gurdjieff-De Hartmann pieces for piano played by Laurence Rosenthal, nearly 73 minutes playing time. The music Gurdjieff composed with De Hartmann spans a range of feeling and levels of intent. The music ranges from the arcane mystery and personal expression or grave, ceremonial dancing, all the way to light-hearted evocations of folk-songs and dances of the peoples among whom he lived and traveled. The present selection includes examples of different atmopheres in which this music lives and breathes.
