Mémoires d’un Amnésique: A piano, a film and Erik Satie, in his own words – Friday 24th July 2020

Mémoires d’un Amnésique: A piano, a film and Erik Satie, in his own words – Friday 24th July 2020

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

Drinks on the lawn at 7pm, weather permitting, will precede the concert which will start at 8pm. The performance will be held in the main hall of Finchcocks manor house on our much-loved Bosendoerfer, and will be narrated in French with English subtitles.
