Alex Metcalfe performs Satie’s most important works, in character as the composer from the set of his Arceuil apartment. Sarah Miles’s script, edited from Satie’s own words, is narrated against the backdrop of Keith Lovegrove’s cinematic accompaniment.
“It is a fabulously well-crafted work of cinematic excellence as well as being a masterly piano recital – when all of that is put together the result is an installation piece that would probably sit very well in any modern art museum.” The Greater Manchester Reviewer
Join us for drinks on the lawn at 9pm, weather permitting, followed by the open-air concert which starts at 9:30pm. The performance will be hosted in the private gardens of Finchcocks, framed by the west elevation of grade-1 listed manor house! A stage is being built in anticipation with on our much-loved Bosendorfer to be wheeled out to join guests on the lawn. The production will be narrated in French with English subtitles. For more information on the Amusia production performance, please see their website www.amusia.co.uk.
Please note the performance is rated 12+ due to some of Satie’s unavoidable and more colourful language!
