Some of you may know that we did our first themed (Philip Glass) recital on RST recently, which went really well. Our next one is themed on Eric Satie, and there are pieces still available if anyone wants to join in smile

We plan to perform in Early November, cheers smile

This is a really fun idea. I'm having a look at N2.
Can I please put a temporary "hold" on it? I'll let you know for sure by Wed or Thursday of this week.

Edited to add: the composer's notes are a hoot.
One is instructed to begin "with amazement"...."don't leave", to play with great kindness, then more intimately, lightly, with intimacy and ...."without pride".

The last one is probably the easiest at this point!

Thanks Wayne smile

I've been looking at the score and there are no bar lines to indicate the measures!

I did a google search and it seems this is one of his "trademarks" of style...but ...well, it seems very very weird. There isn't a time signature either! I guess I'll go with a 4/4 concept.

ACK!

Cheryl, I’m glad you are interested in taking part in this themed recital on Satie’s music.

Sam, I know you are an advanced player, so you could try the Gnossienne No. 5. Take a look at the music score with this link.

Thanks. I would have if I had caught it earlier. (I've never even looked at the RTS thread. If it had had it's own recital thread I would have noticed it). I've been working on a few Satie pieces but they have all been taken.

We are all just getting started Peyton. Some of us (mainly moi) has to learn each note and chord because I don't know any of them! Lots of time to join in!

Peyton, it would be wonderful if you'd join us! smile Especially since you already have been studying Satie's compositions. This will be my very first time learning a Satie selection.

Thanks. I would have to learn an all new work (I don't think I have even heard the 5,6 and 7 Gnossiene's) and I really would not feel comfortable recording unless I've really worked a while on them. I have the 3rd Gnossienne to the point where I really enjoy playing it and would feel comfortable presenting it. The first Gnossienne I have memorized as well but I'm still not sure I understand it... smile Satie was such a mystic. I love the way he has left the Gnossienne's so open to interpretation. I mean really... what does "Advise yourself slowly" mean? LOL I'll enjoy hearing you guys and hopefully I will record what I'm working on at some point in the future for the BF recital or the piano bar.

But seriously, next time you do something like this why don't you give it it's own thread? A Satie recital is a great idea.

Sorry, no the ABF recital is also in November and at this point I have nothing...

Too many pieces, too little time...

If you do Mendelssohn later, then I'm there - I've done a bunch of the songs without words and I could work one of them back up.

Oh, alriiiiight then! I’ve been fidgeting a lot since I saw your thread, Wayne. I’ve spent the the best part of the last 8 years living in Satie’s home town and a stone’s throw from his museum, so I fear it would be bad karma and a betrayal of my memories – now that I’m about to leave - not to offer my support as a backstop for one of the last 3 gnossiennes.

I’m too mean to fork out for the sheet music for no 7 but I’d be happy with either 5 or 6 – and only if we’re allowed to read the piece! No memorizing! I couldn’t face the prospect of learning or trying to get under Satie’s logic for No 6 although I quite like the dissonance.

One other condition. I won’t post to RST! Like Satie and the rest of his gang, I long ago identified Rossy as ABF’s resident surrealist and anyone who’s seen Luis Bunuel’s Exterminating Angel will know immediately what I mean....once you're in RST, there’s no exit.....

Ok... I think that I'm actually not ready to take this on at this point.
I just had my first lesson with my new teacher, and I don't feel this is the right moment to be trying to introduce this piece into my (miniscule) repertoire.

So... please open up n2 for someone else, and I hope to sign up for a later Themed Recital. I think this is a really splendid idea and I'm going to be a staunch supporter, if not a participant just yet!
