The Himalaya Sessions Vol. II Sunken Cathedrals (2017)

Debussy, Faure, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Alkan

Peter Halstead

This is mostly a true story, although names and chronologies have been altered to protect people who might be sensitive to having their lives and motives revealed through intimate diaries which have been obtained under strictures permissible in certain Asian countries. I have been made aware that inclusion of too much detail here could lead to misunderstandings as to the veracity of the former statements. There’s always something.
