Product details

Oscar Wilde's text for 'De Profundis' written in the dark days following his trial inspired Sitsky's illuminating and intense musical interpretation. Baritone Lyall Bevan, percussionist Graeme Leak, the Petra and Canberra School of Music String Quartets give superb performances of this intense work.

In addition this disc features the 'Violin Concerto No.2' which was inspired by the writings of the influential philosopher Gurdjieff and juxtaposes the musical languages of the East and West.

It also includes two compositions for piano performed by the composer: 'Fantasia No.2' and 'Petra'.

Duration: 63 min.

Contents note: De Profundis -- Gurdjieff: Violin concerto No. 2 -- Fantasia No. 2 -- Petra.
