MOVIMENTIFabio Mittino & Bert Lams



We are proud to announce the release of our new album ‘MOVIMENTI’ with Sacred Dances, written by Russian mystic Gurdjieff. After two years of performing and fine-tuning our arrangements in the US and Europe, we are thrilled to present this new repertoire for guitar.

 

Gurdjieff was a philosopher from Russian/Armenian descent. He had the remarkable gift of remembering music he had heard during his early travels in Asia and the Middle East. Many years later he sung and played the melodies to Russian composer Thomas De Hartmann; together they created over 300 pieces between 1918 and 1927.

The music for Movements may seem simple, with short pieces that lack any pretension to elaborate formal construction, yet it often turns in unexpected directions, revealing itself as powerful, fascinating and deeply affecting. In the final words of his book ‘Our Life with Mr Gurdjieff’, Thomas de Hartmann says: “Listening to this music one was touched to the depth of his being…”

Many thanks,
Bert Lams and Fabio Mittino
