Trailer of the new album if German pianist Michael Gees. ImproviSatie brings together works of Satie with improvisation by Michael Gees.
Michael Gees: "The (listening) expectation that a piece has to sound exactly the way it was written has always been challenging to me. For I am interested in the development potential of a composer's idea, and not just in its rendition. I don't like to satisfy myself with musical creation which is already completed as is, but I want to be inspired by the moment of its performance, in this particular room, with this particular grand piano, in front of and with these human beings. This leads to spontaneous variations and unexpected listening adventures. The composition comes into being now, at this moment, as if it was music extempore."
