I was doing research on Erik Satie and stumbled onto your webpage. I was wondering if anybody could help me with this topic. In Satie's "Sonatine Bureaucratique": III, he borrows frequently from Clementi's "Sonatine, Op. 36, No. 1: III. Are these quotations a parody of Clementi or an homage to him. I am having a hard time finding the two composers' connections.
Thanks, Elizabeth

I bought the music sheet. It's beautiful. I read that this was the only parady Satie composed that stuck fairly close to the original. I think he did a wonderful job in using a lovely composition as a basis for a text. I think more people should do this. I think it would really make music ed lots of fun for people who want to do something in music and don't have the natural equipment (like me) to be original. I told one of my profs that including in a recital Clementi and Satie doing the same thing and having Satie's read would be delightful. She thought so too.

Alessandro-

Thanks for the directions to find the translation of Le Piege de Meduse. Were you a part of the production? Do you have a sense of how it was staged? Also, do you know where I might find the score for the play?

Thanks again, it's a stupendous help!

I'm a danish libary student looking for help!
I'm trying to locate the manuscript, choreography and decors for Parade.
The assignment is to find enough material to perform the ballet.

Where to find the documents?

Hello!
Somebody knows d'Edriophthalma, second movement of "Embryons Desséchés" that contains a citation of Marche Funèbre by Chopin? Isn't this also a parody that Satie wanted to make of the work of this Polish composer? I touch this subject often in my lessons and my pupils are amused and very curious, mainly in relation to the text that Satie wrote for this movement.

Hej jesper L

I think it's a good idea to take a trip to Paris and get hold of a lending card to Bibliotheque National. I have myself seen parts of their Satie collection, but not Parade however. In which connection will you make the ballet and where? I'm very curious.

I don't know anything about staging during Satie's day, but in the 1970's, in the Tucson Public Library, I stumbled upon a set of programs from Black Mountain College. There was a program for a small production of Meduse. The peculiar Baron was portrayed by Buckminster Fuller. Cage played piano and Merce Cunningham danced the role of the stuffed monkey. There were some other notables but my memory fails me.

Hello,

the performance i saw was produced and directed by Paolo Poli , music performed (prerecording) by Antonio Ballista, and... no, i was not part of the production :-).

I know that Madelaine Milhaud staged La Piege de Meduse twice in the USA. The first time during world war 2, I think, the next one in the fifties. She did this at the college she was teaching at. Maybe in California, I'm not sure. The play was staged in Paris during Satie's life and has later been recorded on a CD, complete with music and sounds. You can by it in FNAC in France. It is published by Le Castor Astral.

Hello!
Now I need a big help: On Friday December 3rd I intend to play for my pupils, in the University, the "Sonatine Bureaucratique" of Satie followed by the Sonatina of Clementi, but I don't have the score of the work of Satie. Could somebody please get it for me? I will be very grateful.
Debt of gratitude and abraços
