No, Robert Frost’s Banjo is not taking a break for the holiday; & for those who need a break from the holiday soundtrack that’s been playing incessantly for at least a month, we’re offering safe haven.
Today’s Sunday Music is Satie’s Ogives, the earliest of his compostions featured here this month, & indeed one of his earliest overall. An ogive refers to a pointed arch, & Satie apparently was inspired in writing this set of four piano pieces by the windows of Notre Dame de Paris. For more about Satie’s Ogives, please see the Wikipedia entry. The pianist for this recording is Reinbert de Leeuw.
Please join us Sundays next month for five, count ‘em five performances by cellist Zoë Keating at MacWorld 2011.
