ERIK SATIE (1866-1925): Vexations 1-142.
Catalogue Number: 07W042
Format: SACD hybrid
Description: A ‘theme’ in the bass, with two different harmonizations, to be played – according to an ambiguous note on the composer's autograph – 840 times. In her period piano Satie cycle, Ogawa gives us 17% of the composer’s request and has chosen to perform Vexations in a manner that may seem controversial to purists. How? You’ll have to read the booklet notes to find out… Noriko Ogawa (1890 Érard piano.).
