Seven Pillars of Wisdom

This album is the culmination of years of research reconstructing Philippa Schuyler’s largest piano work, not heard since her death in 1967. Composed by a mostly forgotten biracial American composer, this unique and exciting album-length piece combines Arabic and African influences to express the composer’s interpretation of T.E. Lawrence’s experiences in the Middle East in WWI.
