Erik Satie : Vexations for piano for piano ( 1893 ) live at the Conservatoire de Musique in Lagny-sur-Marne the 26th June of 2011 .
This is the very first time a complete non stop , not edited vidéo of the Satie Vexations is on internet . Lasting for the first time less than 10 hours i was able to post it without any stop on the internet because the limitation of my video software : Corel X3 ( 10 hours max ) . If somebody knows another software without this limitation i would be able to post longer vexations .
The reason of such a fast performance was very simple : for the very first time i had nothing to tell me what time it was , and which number of repeat it was. I had only ( as you can see ) a huge pack of 840 pages that were displayed on the ground after played . So i had no possibilities to know if it was fast or slow
The quality is terrible , but ... -10 hours of vidéo i can t do a HD vidéo , it would take 2 weeks to upload it ! and i think that the vidéo quality is not so important since : i never move from the piano bench nor stop.
So some of you might wonder why i should post such a vidéo . For a very simple reason , the Vexations is very rarely played and can t be understood unless you participate to a full concert , and best way to perform it would be with only one pianist and no stops ( so it makes it performance even rarer ).
