        2009-03-20       Erik Satie Oeuvres Pour Piano / Jean-Joel Barbier

i'm really interested to listen to Erik Satie's piano playing his songs by himself... of course i know it's absolutely impossible... (i heard he recorded something... but not his song...? anyway i can't find this recording...) of course everyone knows Erik Satie's music at least "Gymnopedies"... though i've listened to lots of Satie's records by many musicians, all most records were like easy listening music... of course he composed "Musique d'ameublement" that is the root of ambient music, so maybe it was not wrong...? but i think Erik Satie's piano playing were more different from these easy listening style... so he had to write lots of annotation how to play...?
i was looking for the best playing Satie's songs, my result is this 4LP box. the pianist Jean-Joel Barbier is the French pianist also poet, he wrote long explanation of Satie's music and this recording on the booklet. he respects Satie's original idea and mind so much, so i can feel some difference from other Satie's records... i've never seen all of Satie's score by his hands... so i'm not sure Jean-Joel Barbier's interpretation is right to Satie or not... but i feel it's totally different from other "easy listening" versions!! he is also a poet, that's why he could guess and understand how to play his songs with Satie's mind...
well, music is just music... maybe some people prefer "easy listening" version to this record, even they love Satie's music... Satie already dead, so there is no answer now... we don't know what is the best playing of his music... then there wasn't recorders, so he had to write a lot of annotation how to play... at present, we can listen to recordings that were recorded by the composers or musicians under the supervision of composers, even we can't go to concerts... but we know recording is not same as concert... the best thing is listening live music by composers or musicians under the supervision of composers at the venues...
anyway i like this 4LP set very much as the closest to Satie's idea for me , i can't explain you what the difference is from other recordings by my poor English... so i can just recommend it to you if you'd like to listen to a good Satie's record...
