MYSTICAL SYMBOLISM PROGRAM Vexations TuesdayWednesday, September 26-27, 7 pm1 pm This durational concert presents Erik Saties Vexations (1893). Satie composed this iconic piece on the heels of breaking off his involvement with the Salon de la Rose+Croix. It is unknown whether Satie intended for the work to be played or if it were simply a sort of jest directed at the esoteric excesses of Josphin Pladan, the founder of the Salon. But the unlikely piece attracted the attention of John Cage, who first staged it. Cage organized a concert in New York in 1963 featuring contemporary musicians such as John Cale, James Tenney, David Tudor, and Christian Wolff. Observing one of Saties instructions literally, the score was repeated 840 times (the performance lasted almost 19 hours), in an unprecedented serial undertaking that echoed the Minimalist and Conceptual concerns of the 1960s. More than 50 years later, the Guggenheim will once again present Vexations to a New York audience. Ticketing information announced in June. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/calendar. Furniture in Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 18921897 courtesy of Roche Bobois. Additional support provided by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
