Erik Satie - Dada Works & Entr'actes

LTM
(LTM2474: 5024545441727)



A collection of Dada-related works by French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925) including music used by Francis Picabia, Tristan Tzara, Kurt Schwitters and René Clair.

An enthusiastic Dada activist in Paris between 1920 and 1924, Satie collaborated extensively with Tzara, Man Ray, Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau, wrote often in Picabia's journal 391, and became a sworn enemy of the Surrealist faction lead by André Breton.

Performed on piano by Bojan Gorisek, this unique selection includes Trois morceaux en forme de poire, performed by Satie in July 1923 at Tzara's notorious Soirée du Coeur à Barbe, as well as Ragtime Dada, an extract from the ballet Parade performed at Dada events staged by Kurt Schwitters and Theo van Doesburg in 1922.

Dada Works also includes Satie's score for Entr'acte, Francis Picabia's dazzling multi-media 'instantaneist' ballet. Relâche dates from 1924, while Cinéma is Satie's music for an intermission film by René Clair. Both are arrangements for solo piano.

The CD booklet includes archive images, writings by Satie for Dada journals 391 and Le Couer à Barbe, as well as detailed historical notes.

CD tracklist:

1. Trois morceaux en forme de poire
2. Ragtime Dada
3. Relâche Pt.1
