The LP issue of the 2 CD's of Satie's 'Slow Music' played by Jeroen van Veen. Erik Satie's music remains as eccentric as it was when composed in the early 20th century. Bizar, anti-romantic and ironic it stands in sharp contrast with the grandiloquent outpourings of the Late Romantics or the hyper sensitive drawings of the Impressionists. In his performance of "slow" piano music pianist Jeroen van Veen stretches the concept of slowness to it's extreme, creating a hallucinatory effect, a kind of Minimal Music avant la lettre. Satie's music appeals to audiences well beyond the traditional classical boundaries, and the issue on vinyl is an attractive bonus Side A for any Satie fan.
