Selected Songs by Erik Satie

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 57 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

From a program first broadcast in 1969, Howard Hersh introduces a veritable cornucopia of songs composed by Erik Satie, with a sprinkling of Satie’s solo piano music and a song cycle by his friend Claude Debussy included for added seasoning. Although Satie is perhaps best known for his serene works for solo piano as well as his many dramatic works, he also produced a selection of song cycles and cabaret songs. While motivated by the fees such popular songs demanded in turn of the 20th century Paris Satie did not stint on the quality, and his cabaret songs are still as delightful to the ear as when they were first performed in the cafe’s of the French capital. For this program the performers are Anna Carol Dudley, soprano and Nathan Schwartz, piano.
