Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

On this SACD from Praga, pianist Christoph Deluze is featured in a selection of the eclectic solo piano music of Erik Satie. The pairing is the composer's ballet Parade in a recording from 1959 featuring Manuel Rosenthal. The work, premièred in May of 1917, brought together the painter Picasso, the dancer/choreographer Massine and composer Satie. It provoked a scandal comparable to that caused by The Rite of Spring four years earlier.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Parade from 1916 generously fills Deluze's disc to near capacity and offers a wonderful view of another, less-known aspect of Satie's compositional abilities. Diaghilev reputedly said to Cocteau, "Astonish me", and that was the impetus behind assembling the painter Picasso, the choreographer Massine, and the composer Satie to collaborate on a ballet. This is a captivating and idiomatic performance.
