Ouvrez la Tête

(Sept pièces pour piano à Satie, 2014)

  • Piano solo

  • Duration 9 min.

  • First performance on May 19, 2016, in Toronto, Canada by Heidi Saario

As an homage to the French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925), almost all expression and tempo marks in this piano suite have been borrowed from his works. The opening movement can be seen as a sporty challenge: all the 88 keys of the piano have to be played as fast as possible. The title ’Ouvrez la Tête’ can be translated as ’Open (your) Head’. TR, 2018
