(Gurdjieff International Review)
contains the most representative and best selection of the Gurdjieff
/ de Hartmann music I've heard on a single CD. Alessandra Celletti's
interpretations are as sensitive and as idiosyncratic as Glen
Gould's. Her playing and selection are exceptional."
[J. Walter Driscoll - Editor of Gurdjieff
International Review and author of "Gurdjieff: an annotated
bibliography" (1985) and "Gurdjieff: a reading Guide"
offers a sensitive and even tender interpretation of the Gurdjieff/deHartmann
music, which calls for a rare quality of surrender to the music
combined with a precision of intention. This music is both simple
and extraordinarily subtle; and Alessandra Celletti's touch reflects
these same qualities."

including "Time and the Soul" and "Lost Christianity"]
[Charles T. Tart - Professor, Institute of
Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto, California]
through natural or intentional selection, the pieces in this album
are woven together in a musical tapestry that Celletti shares
wholeheartedly with you the listener. Hidden Sources is a gentle
but strong expression of an artist approaching a mystery. We hope
Alessandra Celletti continues on her way with this music".
[James Tomarelli - editor of Bennett Books]
"Cells of beauty
and not verbal wisdom that speak clearly to our deeper soul. Every
note carves a profile, designs a curve, each key reveals a mountain,
a cheekbone, a perfume, a spiritual landscape. Sacred dances for
sceptical travellers of knowledge. Immense."
[Marco Boccitto - musical reviewer of Il
Celletti's touch gives a specific emotional colour to every note,to
every passage, to each of the 18 tracks of the disc, western interpretations
of Asian and Indian songs. A bare and essential musical reading
enhances in every passage the top level writing of the two composers."
[Paolo De Bernardin - musical reviewer of
Musica! La Repubblica]
reveals the Hidden Sources of sounds lost, and found again. This
"recherche du son perdu" of a lost music contains, within the
vital melancholy expressed by the sounds and the performer, an
extraordinary light and vibration".
[Erasmo Valente - musical reviewer of L’Unità]
is an excellent CD. The all production is superb and Alessandra
Celletti plays like piano magician".
