Erik Satie: Vexations @ NYU

Paulson Center Northeast Lobby, 181 Mercer Street, New York, NY

NYU piano faculty, students, and guests present Erik Satie's infamous Vexations in a daylong performance taking place in the Paulson Center's Northeast lobby. Written in 1893 and first performed in Greenwich Village in 1963, this historic work foreshadowed minimalism and installation art by nearly a century. Consisting of a single musical fragment performed 840 times, Vexations offers all listeners a unique real-time experience.
