WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?

Originally a piece for piano, we've arranged it for multiple players on any instrument.

It's much easier to play than it looks! Satie was an eccentric composer, and Vexations is full of accidentals and strange enharmonic note spellings, like B♭♭ and E#. You'll really have to get into a Satie frame of mind for this one! But it can be done.

The music contains a bass voice, a middle voice, and a high voice. Find the part that suits the range, key, and clef of your instrument below.
