Erik Satie

Dada Works & Entr'actes

Label: LTM

Format: CD

Genre: Compositional

In stock


A collection of Dada-related works by French avant-garde 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 a series of 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 the celebrated intermission film by René Clair. Both are arrangements for solo piano.
