Satie and Friends

Satie & Compagnie

French composers Debussy, Ravel, Satie and Poulenc are all featured on this CD. From the gentlest impressionism to the later French styles, the journeys of French music are many and varied – and beautifully colorful. And don’t forget the humor that many of these fine composers gave to us to enrich our lives.

Here is Anne Queffelec, as she plays Chopin



And next, here she is in a section from the concerto for Oboe by Alessandro Marcello (1669 – 1747) and later adapted by J.S. Bach (1675-1750) for keyboard as his BWV 974:


So you can see that she plays the “old music”, and also the new music of Satie!
