    GEBRU, TSEGE MARIAM

    Spielt Eigene Kompositionen

    [engl] A most unusual & stunning album. Tsege Mariam Gebru is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing & playing music on the piano since the 1960’s. Her music is a unique mix of Western classical music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music & Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano. She plays with restrained grace & purity. The record invites repeated listening well and is filled with spiritual warmth. We are very proud to present this LP – the first in a series of records we will be releasing with music culled from the monumental Ethiopiques CD series. We firmly believe that she is among the very greatest piano players and composers of all time.
