Gurdjieff-de Hartmann, Volume 2
Among the many recordings of the Gurdjieff/de Hartmann music, few are exceptional. This is surely one of those few. An accomplished concert pianist and composer (including numerous film scores, such as the score for Peter Brooks's film of "Meetings with Remarkable Men"), Rosenthal benefits from decades of sensitive listening, as well as "practice" in the best sense of the word. The high standard of the sound studio in which these pieces were recorded adds a final, helpful touch.
The anticipated 2nd volume contains 25 selections of sacred hymns, prayers and folksongs, exquisitely performed. It contains familiar titles such as "Prayer of Gratitude" as well as others which are rarely performed.
