September 25th will see John Palmer‘s satori performed by Kristian Nyquist at the Evangelische Kirche, in Karlsruhe-Grötzingen, Germany. Four days later, his three imaginary dialogues for 4-hands piano will receive its German premiere by the Hayashikazi-Hagemann piano duo at the Spendhaus, “Bild des Monats”, in Reutlingen.
Regarding his 1999 piece for solo harpsichord, John Palmer notes: “When the acquisition of a new viewpoint begins to take shape, intuition becomes the tool for exploring other states of mind located beyond logical understanding. I have interpreted the experience of satori as the unfolding of a deeper insight into the truth of reality, an enlightened consciousness flashing into a new spiritual actuality.”
