The Halifax Gurdjieff Group invites you to a special performance of the music of Gurdjieff/de Hartmannn presented by pianist Cecilia Ignatieff. 

For many years G.I. Gurdjieff travelled though the Middle East and Central Asia to discover and develop the teaching which now bears his name. This music, an integral part of his teaching,  encompasses deeply evocative themes from ancient and sacred music of different traditions.  Thomas de Hartmann, a gifted composer, collaborated with Gurdjieff to notate and transcribe the music for piano. The selection being played at this concert are primarily drawn from the body of work entitled Asian Songs and Dances, and Sayyids and Dervishes. For more information about this music see:

Cecilia Ignatieff has been active as a performer since her university years when she appeared with the Royal Conservatory Orchestra and with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.  As a collaborative pianist, she accompanied many instrumentalists and singers; and she has several recordings to her credit. Having retired to a rural home in Lanark Highlands, Ontario, she is engaged in promoting the compositions of Thomas de Hartmann and in performing the works he co-wrote with G.I. Gurdjieff.
