        I was intrigued by Satie and this selection of his piano pieces gives good examples of his style.

        Although we liked the these pieces very much we would make two comments: Keeping the book open by itself is difficult the print is a little blurred in places

        Rien à redire du contenu: c'est du Satie... Par contre, reliure collée avec des feuilles tellement fines: il est difficile de les tourner (tout en jouant) sans les abimer et elles ne restent pas toujours bien droites!

        Les oeuvres les plus connues sont présentes. J'aurais bien aimé y trouver également l'ensemble (complet) des gnossiennes, celles manquantes (gnossiennes 4 et 5) sont difficiles à acquérir. Ce recueil reste néanmoins très complet avec ses sarabandes et autres pièces pour piano et a définitivement sa place parmi les meilleurs albums.

        Bon document. Portées assez espacées donnant de l'air, ça met bien dans l'ambiance "Satie"! lol

        An excellent book covering a broad range of Satie's distinctive piano work including duets ('pieces in pear form'). This book is well worth getting as a starting point to explore a wealth of other pieces beyond the gymnopedies and gnossiennes that are widely known, and for enjoying his crazy playing notes ('dont eat too much''without frowning' 'very shiny'). This is the best Satie book I've seen and I'd highly recommend you buy it. The paper's a bit thin, but this is now part of the books charm to me. (I'm also a big fan of 'Sports and Divertissments' so would recommend you get that as well)

        Excellent book with many of saties pieces which are otherwise hard to find. A beautiful addition to the library of any impressionist-loving pianist.

        Lovely collection of pieces, the Danse en Travers from Pieces Froides is simply stunning, definitely appeals to my teenage students.
