Notes:

For the piano pieces for which it was not possible to determine who played them, the player was most likely either Cecil Lytle or Thomas DeHartmann. The recordings in which Mr. DeHartmann plays are from the 20th century, often early in that century. So, they were perhaps restored for the recordings of them which are online and were used for this show; but those were also remastered by me specifically for this show. They will (still) sound different, though, from modern studio or live recordings, since digital audio technology was not commercially used until the 1980s, long after Mr. DeHartmann was gone.
The two songs which are marked with an asterisk (*) were not composed by Mr. Gurdjieff & Mr. DeHartmann.

  39. We don’t know who the woman is in this conversation. She is described in Pronunciation Sound Files for the Guide and Index to G. I. Gurdjieff’s Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson as “a speaker who knows Russian as well as French and English and heard all the invented words spoken repeatedly by Gurdieff himself”. We have not been able to locate the URL for this conversation. It was previously in the Archive (archive.org), but is not there now. However, we found it embedded in this audio video that Michael Garland uploaded to you tube (Thank you, Mr. Garland!). It is at 21:36; but the speakers are nowhere identified.
