Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the music of Erik Satie, the sublime and the ridiculous reside in such tantalizingly close proximity that it's useless to try to separate them--which may, after all, be the point. For example, what can one say about 'Three Pieces in the Form of a Pear' other than there are really seven of them and regardless what fruit they may sound or look like they comprise a set of dances as disarming as any in piano literature? Fortunately, the case is well made in the performances of Pascal Rogé and Jean-Philippe Collard, who bring just the right balance of lightness and weight, wit, and beauty and plainness to the music. The four-handed piano arrangement of the surreal ballet 'Parade' lacks the sirens, gunshots and typewriters of the more familiar Read more orchestral version, but retains its quirky mixture of vaudeville and proto-minimalism to winning effect; and the "serious fantasy" of 'The Eccentric Beauty' is Satie at his most uproarious, linking childish etudes, waltzes and can-cans with a comical series of music-hall vamps.
