Vexations is a noted musical work by Erik Satie. Apparently conceived for keyboard (though the single page of manuscript does not specify an instrument), it consists of a short theme in the bass whose four presentations are alternatively heard unaccompanied and played with chords above. The theme and its accompanying chords are written using strikingly eccentric and impractical enharmonic notation. The piece is undated, but scholars usually assign a date around 1893 on the basis of musical and biographical evidence. (Wikipedia)

Thanks for the notation! The original isn't exactly an easy read!
Nicolas, You did a great job typesetting this. This is a real challenge for software-based music editing applications such as MuseScore. Thank you for providing this! Mike Magatagan
