Erik Satie - Avant-Dernières Pensées: Selected Piano Works (vol.1)
Avant-Dernières Pensées collects together several of Erik Satie’s best known compositions, including the famously poised Trois Gymnopédies, all six haunting Gnossiennes, and Je te Veux. Also included are more experimental pieces such as Descriptions Automatiques and Sports et Divertissements, an extraordinary collection of 21 miniatures from 1914 with illustrations by Charles Martin. The album also finds space for Satie’s single-act, neo-Dada lyric comedy Le Piège de Médusa, comprising ‘seven tiny dances for Jonah the Monkey’, illustrated by Cubist painter Georges Braque. All pieces performed by pianist Bojan Gorisek on piano.
