      Musicroom Reviews

      This is an excellent edition. Not only is the music engraved clearly and intelligently, but is a very informative forward discussing the historical context of the piece. I like the short biography of Eric Satie as it helps put the music real perspective and gives me a focus for the interpretation. A well thought out edition, highly recommended.
