This is an excellent disc. Macgregor's playing is sensitive, elegant, accurate and considered. The phrasing is musical and perfectly suits the music's wistful, dying fall. The apparent simplicity is neither exaggerated nor abused, which makes a pleasant change. Nor is it over-pedalled.
This is not, of course, a recital, but a collection of Satie's piano music. That one can become sick of it after too long an exposure is not Macgregor's fault.
