Erik Satie - Cubist Works 1913-1924

LTM
(LTM2406: 5024545446821)



LTM is proud to announce a new CD in our series by visionary French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925), following the success of previous releases Vexations, Socrate, Musique de la Rose + Croix and Dada Works, on which we present selected Satie recordings with explicit links to the unconventional, the mystic and the avant-garde. Cubist Works offers four works composed by Satie between 1913 and 1924 for his collaborations with the artist Pablo Picasso. These include piano and orchestral versions of his scores for the celebrated ‘Cubist’ ballets Parade (1917) and Mercure (1924), as well as the seldom-heard organ ‘diversion’, The Statue Found (1923). The 60 minute CD also includes The Puppets Are Dancing, written for the French Futurist dancer and poet Valentine de Saint-Point in 1913, and the ludic Trois Valses distinguées du précieux dégouté (‘Three Disgustingly Precious Waltzes’), a barbed swipe at rival composer Maurice Ravel and premiered at an exhibition of works by Picasso, Matisse and others in 1916. The solo piano works on this CD are performed by Bojan Gorisek. The booklet includes archive images and detailed liner notes by James Hayward. Also available by Erik Satie on LTM: Vexations (LTMCD 2389), Cocteau, Satie & Les Six (LTMCD 2402), Socrate / Melodies (LTMCD 2459), Musique de la Rose + Croix (LTMCD 2469), Dada Works & Entr’actes (LTMCD 2424).
