Erik Satie

This week we take a look at some music with roots in Yemen, Morocco, Sudan,  and Sephardic Spain -- some ancient, some contemporary.

Then we devote the second half of the program to the world premiere recording of a major piano work by Erik Satie, written in 1892, played at its debut in that year, and possibly unperformed again for nearly a hundred years..

It all promises to make for a most unusual evening up in the Attic.
 

We all know that Mozart died before completing his Requiem, because we've all seen Amadeus.

Well, that's not quite how it happened, but there was still some skullduggery involved in getting the work completed by other composers, and in the years since others have tried their hands at filling in Mozart's blanks. Some of these revisions have been quite severe and others are so subtle that the casual listener might not notice the difference. We look at one of those slight  modifications this week with a new orchestration completed by Franz Beyer in the 1970s.
