Sheila Firestone's "Letter to Erik Alfred Leslie Satie" (2.6 MB)


Sheila Firestone ~ "Letter to Erik Alfred Leslie Satie"


"The stark beauty of your compositions—from the Gymopedies and Gnossiennes, with their immersion into mood, ambiguity, and uncluttered, unbroken melodious lines, to "Le Fils Des Etoiles"—startled me from my very first encounter. Your works contain exquisite dissonance in slow stirring progressions. For you I create this small homage to your genius, to thank you for speaking the language of subtle movement that invites me to create."
