For Sunday: Anne Queffelec plays one of Erik Satie’s “Pieces froides”

Satie


I know I’ve posted at least one Erik Satie piece before, but I’m a big fan, so here’s another.

 


This is one of Satie’s “Pieces froides”: “Cold pieces.”  It is grim and beautiful and pianistic, and has some very beautiful moments.

 


Enjoy.

  1. Moody, somewhat discordant and beautiful … New one for me. Thank you.

    • I’m a huge Satie fan; I have three different complete collections of his music, and each is different, because no one can quite agree on what he wrote. This is a nice strong angry/melancholy piece from his middle period, and has been one of my favorites for a long time. I’m glad you liked it too.
