Music for Gurdjieff’s ’39’ Series’
This new recording of Wim van Dullemen brings to the surface the history and development of the special music created by Thomas de Hartmann for Gurdjieffs main corpus of Movements called the 39 series. The result of van Dullemens many years of independent research is published here for the first time, and has been augmented and verified by several eye witnesses who studied these Movements under the guidance of Mr. Gurdjieff himself during the last years of his life. The elaborate cd booklet is lavishly illustrated with authentic historical documents and illustrations, many of which are published here for the first time. The cds introduction is written by Thomas C. Daly, curator of the Thomas de Hartmann Estate and successor of Olga de Hartmann (the composers widow) in the Gurdjieff Foundation of Canada. This cd is the companion volume to Music for the Movements (1999, CCS 15298), both albums were produced by Gert-Jan Blom.
