Sacred Sundays: Music of Gurdjieff

For this week's Sacred Sunday feature, host David Garland presents music composed by the early 20th Century mystic Gurdjieff for his "Sacred Gymnastics and Movements." Gurdjieff believed that dance could be used as a language to express cosmic knowledge, and he created music to accompany carefully choreographed ensemble movement. In the 1920s Gurdjieff's music was orchestrated for presentations in New York and Paris, and a recent, premier recording of those orchestrations is featured.
