Born in the Ukraine into an aristocratic Russian family in 1885, Thomas de Hartmann as a young man was a successful and honoured composer. A life-long friend of abstract artist Kandinsky, he shared with him and his circle the search for new expression through union of the arts. In 1916 he met G.I. Gurdjieff in St Petersburg and then followed him for 12 years, famously collaborating on over 300 works of sacred music. In 1929 he returned to Paris and to his own music with a new search for meaning. He died in America  in 1956.
