A title in the Michael Kieran Harvey Collection. Other titles in this series

This disc features 'The way of the seeker' a new composition by Larry Sitsky. Judith Crispin describes the work thus in her notes in the CD booklet: "Sitsky's highly virtuosic work for solo piano The Way of the Seeker (completed 11December 2004) is dedicated to the Canadian pianist and composer Gordon Rumson. This work takes its title from the English translation of Hakim Sanai's mystical text the Sair al-Ibad ila'l Maad (the Way of the Seeker) written in the 11th century. Abul Majd bin Majdud bin Adam, also known as Hakim Sanai, was one of the three great mystical Mathnavi poets of Persia, the others being Shaikh Faridu'd-Din 'Attar and Jalalu'd-Din Rumi. The youngest of these, Jalalu'd-Din Rumi, expressed his great admiration for Attar and Sanai in writing "Attar is the soul and Sanai its two eyes, I came after Sanai and Attar." In the translation of Sanai's Sair al-Ibad ila'l Maad by Idries Shah, the text is divided into definite sections. In The Way of the Seeker, Sitsky follows these divisions, using quotations from each section as subtitles for each of the six musical movements. Each movement should be understood as a meditation on its corresponding quotation. More details.
