Avant-dernieres Pensees by : Erik Satie : Ulrich Kramer
In a typically humorous manner Satie countered the myth of the great master's “last thought” with his “Next-to-last thoughts” (“Avant-dernières Pensées”). As was usual with his piano works from 1912 onwards; each of the three highly distinctive pieces with their sound sensitive piano settings contained a short whimiscal story printed in the musical text as a subtext; which is more or less closely connected with the music. Satie dedicated his “Next-to-last thoughts” to prominent contemporaries: Claude Debussy (for no. 1 “Idylle”); with whom he was close friends; Paul Dukas (no. 2 “Aubade;” in English “Dawn Serenade”); whose music he greatly admired; and Albert Roussel (no. 3 “Méditation”); his former teacher of counterpoint at the Schola Cantorum in Paris.
