About the album

A jazz musician - pianist and composer - plays Erik Satie. His stations: SOK, Synopsis, the Ulrich Gumpert workshop band (celebrated on international Festivals), the duo with Günter Sommer; the trio with Radu Malfatti and Tony Oxley. Gumpert performing in a duo with Dietmar Diesner and Gumpert solo, playing his own piano music - plain pieces of deep urge. It seems as if Gumpert inevitably had to come to Satie. It is not scores which are the essence of Satie's music but his attitudes. A pianist who feels strange with Satie's nature, can play the pieces key by key from the score and though disfigure them past recognition. l can't name any musician who is more able to play the early works of Erik Satie, than Ulrich Gumpert.

Ein Jazzmusiker spielt Erik Satie, ein Klavierspieler und Komponist. Seine Stationen: SOK, Synopsis, die auf internationalen Festivals gefeierte Ulrich Gumpert Workshop Band, das Duo mit Günter Sommer, das Trio mit Radu Malfatti und Tony Oxley. Gumpert spielt im Duett mit Dietmar Diesner, und er spielt seine eigene Pianomusik - schlichte Stücke von großer Eindringlichkeit. Es scheint so, als hätte Gumpert so oder so zu Satie kommen müssen. Saties Musik lebt nicht vom Notentext, sondern von der Haltung. Ein Pianist, dem Saties Wesen fremd ist, kann die Stücke notengetreu abspielen und dennoch bis zur Unkenntlichkeit entstellen. In der Gegend, die ich kenne, kann ich mir keinen besseren Klavierspieler für die frühen Werke Erik Saties vorstellen als Ulrich Gumpert.
