Erik Satie  (1866-1925)
Last updated: 14.10.17
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Erik Satie was a French composer; for a time worked as café pianist, etc., and at 39 became a pupil of Albert Roussel and d'Indy. Influenced younger composers towards a cool, clear style and away from the lushness sometimes associated with impressionism. His piano solos and duets mostly have eccentric titles, e.g. "3 Pear-Shaped Pieces"; several of these were orchestrated by Francis Poulenc and others. Wrote also ballets, including "Relâche" (the word displayed by French theatres when they are closed), operettas, Mass (Messe des pauvres, symphonic drama "Socrates".
