A couple of years ago I received from a close friend from Serbia Branka Parlic's recording of Eric Satie on an Ex-Jugoslavian label. I was deeply touched by the performance, but not by the sound quality. So I get in contact with Branka and invited her to come to Winterthur for doing another recording of the same program.

The original recording was a single album. During the time in the Studio we decided to record more Satie pieces and doing a Double LP. We also kept the original besides noise such a using the pedal of the piano, breathing etc. to keep the atmosphere of the recording studio.
