ERIK SATIE (1866-1925): Complete Piano Music.
Catalogue Number: 06R044
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: The existence of a printed version of this catalogue precludes the laboriously listing of the 69 titles making up this exhaustive box-set, but let me note: Previous “complete” issues have taken up six discs. This box includes a 78-minute disc of the music for four hands as well as the 79-minute ninth disc which contains the first 47 repetitions of Vexations (meat for the pianist here who specializes otherwise in 20th century minimalism) - you can also download the whole 840 of them digitally if your medication has terminally lost its efficacy. Also taking up an entire disc is Le fils des étoiles - at 80 minutes it is 20 minutes longer than the version we offered on Passacaille in 2013 (02O050.) 9 CDs. Jeroen van Veen (piano), Sandra van Veen (duo partner).
