Later, at a different time, which is not this time, I shall upload some Satie for you all.

So you can bask. Bask in the glory.

Also, why not pump up this thread. It isn't as if this forum is a madhouse of posting.

Satie's pieces may be short, but every second seems like a year when listening...

Unlike Wagner, of course, where every minute seems like a millenium...

Here's the millenium Satie:

Reinbert De Leeuw is the Celibidache of the keyboard.

the phone rings and somebody says,
"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."
                               --Charles Bukowski, "Mahler"

It is really slow but I think it's absolutely gorgeous.

I'm sure to enjoy it.

One piece of Satie that is always played to slow, and I think detracts from the work, is Vexations. Played at its proper speed it is even more maddening, if you can imagine that.

I've only one version, Ciccolini. How does his speed compare?

I believe that he is still slow.
Isn't he around 1 minute 30 seconds?

He sure is a taffy puller alright.

Sounds the the work of a Heroin addict about to nod.  ::)

I don't hear it that way but I understand you. I'd never recommend this CD to anyone as a first choice but it's a valid and interesting alternative view of the music, I think. I like it anyway  :)

Sorry, I though we were dissing him. I need to listen again later with fresh ears. I just missed those playful rhythms at his tempo. That was my main concern.

Quicker than most, but still 19 seconds too slow.

Below is a link to my topic on the old forum. It has some great links within.

Both.

Also, The Chairs, Arcanum, and I am sure some other screen names that I cannot recall at this moment.

Oh sorry about that, George. No, I wasn't dissing Leeuw. I like Celibidache so if I say someone is like him it's a good thing to me. I should have realized, though, it's going to have negative connotations for a lot of people. Should have clarified what I meant. But really, it's okay if don't like it. You can even hate it. You have my permission  :)

Actually, now that I think about it, your drug reference fits pretty well. It does have an exaggerated, trippy quality to it. Time artificially altered.

Thanks.  :)  I think I just realized that it can sometimes be just as easy to like something as it is to not like on it, simly based on whatever preconceptions one brings to the table.

Quite so, but as you may know, or not, I nearly almost always tend towards the more intereting recordings, this is in general, not just specific to Satie.

You'll love Maria Yudina, then. Have you heard her?  :)

Of course. I love her. Have her in some Bach and Beethoven.
