SATIE, ERIK - VEXATIONS (CD)


"Written by Satie in 1893, the extraordinary score for Vexations is just three lines long, yet a complete performance (840 repetitions) may last for anything between 14 and 28 hours. First performed by John Cage in 1963, this radical yet enigmatic work is now recognized as a significant musical milestone in the avant-garde canon. This meditative 69 minute recording features 40 repetitions of the motif, performed by Alan Marks on piano in 1987. Booklet contains extended essay on the piece by Stephen Willington." (label info)
