E. Satie: Avant-Dernieres Pensees For Piano

Books | Piano

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Composer: Erik Satie
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

The atmospheric cycle Avant-Dernières Pensées (Next-to-last Thoughts) of 1915, with its underlaid words, likewise belongs to Satie’s ‘story pieces’. The curious performance instructions in these three miniatures, all based on ostinato figures, amusingly lampoon the ideal of Romantic expressiveness.

This Urtext edition faithfully adheres to the sources and reflects the latest findings of Satie scholarship. It contains translations of all of Satie’s French texts, practical page-turns, notes on performance practice by Satie specialist Steffen Schleiermacher and informative Forewords. The piece ranges from an easy to moderate level of difficulty and provides an ideal additional varied repertoire for teaching purposes.
