Format: Audio CD
The highlight of this selection of Satie's orchestral works - part of a series of albums featuring performances commendably played by complete unknowns - has to be "Parade". This "Ballet Realiste" is a very much neglected part of the history of art in the early twentieth century: commissioned by Diaghilev; conceived by Cocteau; designed by Picasso; choreographed by Massin. Satie's music brings to life the spirit of that age - bold, lively, daring, and yet (to 21st century ears at least) very accessible. The inclusion of a typewriter and a siren into the ranks of the percussion sums up Satie's sense of fun. "Parade" deserves to be much more widely heard. Satie's most famous work "Three Gymnopedies" also appears on this disc arranged for orchestra. Lovely as they are, heard next to the other works here you can't help feeling that they're rather schmaltzy by comparison. "Mercure" was another colloboration with Picasso, and "Relache" saw Satie working with the film director Rene Clair. This latter work shows Satie as a man very much of his time as well as ahead of his time. Described as the only musical contribution to Dadaism it uses everyday, even mundane, elements to say something new and provocative. It also clearly set the seed of minimalism which didn't flower until decades later. If you've only heard his piano music then you can't go wrong with this. If you're a fan of Satie, your collection is not complete without it.

A lovely CD. Great sensitivity from Kaltenbach and the Orchestre Symphonique, all pieces played with affection and full attention to detail. Fine sound recording balance, too.

I possess a vanilla copy of Satie's" Carnival" which has been in my garage for some 14 years. I saw this and although I have at least two versions of the "Gymnopedie" trio I decided to purchase. A good decision as this recording is quite beautiful.
