Scott Morris has just released ‘Phonology’, his book of arrangements for guitar of the music of Erik Satie. The book includes a CD of studio recordings of all the pieces done on French guitars provided by GSI by such makers as Robert Bouchet, Daniel Friederich, Dominique Field, Jean-Noel Rohe and Bertrand Ligier. There are also some guest artists on the CD, including Andrew York on guitar, soprano Nanette Gobel and oboist Richard Kravchak.

We just happen to have a great 1979 cedar Friederich at the moment (not the one Scott used on the CD), so Scott recorded Satie’s Nocturne No. 2 for us on it in the showroom.
