Erik Satie


French composer and pianist whose bold harmonics were studied by other composers. His work influenced the group of young composers known as "Les Six." As a cafe pianist in Paris, he gained a reputation for his wit, criticism and eccentricity.

He studied only one year at the Paris Conservatoire, then started his café pianist work and returned to serious study in 1905 at the Schola Cantorum. Satie, along with Jean Cocteau and Picasso, produced a shocking ballet, "Parade," in 1917. Among his other works are two ballets, the piano suite, "Gymnopedies" in 1888, four sopranos, chamber orchestra and numerous piano pieces.

Satie died of liver failure due to alcohol abuse on 1 July 1925, Paris, France.
