Pièces Froides

This week’s Sunday Music is Satie’s Pièces Froides, composed in 1897 but not published until 1912. The composition is made up of two sets of three pieces, Airs à faire fuir & Danses de travers. They were written without either key or time signature. The recording is by pianist Reinbert de Leeuw.
