Probably the most famous pieces written by Erik Satie are the “Gymnopedies” and the “Gnossiennes.” He wrote much more than just those works, however. Barenreiter is releasing other works during this 150th year after Satie’s birth. These works include “Avant-dernieres pensees” (“Penultimate Thoughts”), “Les fils des etoiles” (“Preludes”), and “Embryons deseches” (Dessicated Embryos”). The latter is a set of three pieces about sea creatures, believe it or not! They have no meter, so you can have fun figuring out how best to play these pieces. “Penultimate Thoughts” is likewise without meter.
