Keith Jarrett - Sacred Hymns of GI Gurdjieff

Artist: Keith Jarrett
Album: Sacred Hymns of GI Gurdjieff
Year: Germany in March 1980

This is a deeply meditative set of tracks played beautifully, and with great intensity by Keith Jarrett.Jarrett, for many years, has been a follower of the teachings of Armenian composer, mystic, and philosopher
G. I. Gurdjieff. In 1980 he recorded for ECM an album of his compositions Sacred Hymns of G. I. Gurdjieff. The pieces have a spare, stark quality imbued with fragility and spirituality. A lovely disc; great performances...Highly recommended for those looking for tranquility and beauty!
