Gees uses Erik Satie’s piano works as his inspiration for a series of improvisations that cross the boundaries of traditional classical music in a way that is both compelling and elegant. This is where Satie might have ended up if he had gone further in both time and space with his music. Gees is a fluently intuitive improviser who encompasses both twentieth and twenty-first century influences. One of our favourite recordings of recent years, recorded in possibly the most beautiful hall we have ever seen. For more information visit Challenge.
