Even though the Armenian composer, mystic, and philosopher G.I. Gurdjieff died in 1949, his legacy lives on. On this New Sounds From the Vaults, first broadcast on May 29, 1986, John Schaefer assembled a collage of G. I. Gurdjieff’s music and the effects of his musical influence. Together with his disciple, the Russian composer Thomas deHartmann, Gurdjieff created several cycles of piano works. Hear some of these sophisticated piano compositions performed by Keith Jarrett, Alain Kremski, Herbert Henck, along with deHartmann’s performances on private tape. Also, listen to works inspired by this well-traveled guru, as in new music by composers Robert Fripp, David Hykes, and again Keith Jarrett.
