Notes & Reviews:

The Oldest of the Moderns: Erik Satie, known for his droll sense of humour, moved in the same Parisian artistic circles as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau und Man Ray. He became a role model for an entire generation of composers, offering French lightness and wit as a contrast to the world of Richard Wagner. His music is as enigmatic as his personality – influenced as much by mysticism as by the glitter of Parisian cabaret.
