Erik Satie: Musique de la Rose-Croix; Pages mystiques; Uspud

All Music Guide - Uncle Dave Lewis
In 1890, already eccentric composer Erik Satie joined the Rosicrucian salon led by even more eccentric French mystic S?r P?ladan. Satie was named the musical director of the Ordre de Rose-Croix, which held its annual soir?e at the Galerie Durand-Ruel in Paris. Satie experienced a nasty break with P?ladan and left the order in October 1892, yet the experience grounded him in a unique musical idiom of his own devising that he would pursue until he returned to his now-familiar "Gymnop?dist" idiom, briefly, in about 1896. Satie's Rose-Croix period was one of the most productive phases of his career and probably the most innovative one. LTM's disc Erik Satie: Musique de la ...

All Music Guide - Uncle Dave Lewis
In 1890, already eccentric composer Erik Satie joined the Rosicrucian salon led by even more eccentric French mystic Sâr Péladan. Satie was named the musical director of the Ordre de Rose-Croix, which held its annual soirée at the Galerie Durand-Ruel in Paris. Satie experienced a nasty break with Péladan and left the order in October 1892, yet the experience grounded him in a unique musical idiom of his own devising that he would pursue until he returned to his now-familiar "Gymnopèdist" idiom, briefly, in about 1896. Satie's Rose-Croix period was one of the most productive phases of his career and probably the most innovative one. LTM's disc Erik Satie: Musique de la Rose-Croix features pianists Bojan Gorisek and Richard Cameron-Wolfe in a comprehensive, if not altogether complete, survey of Satie's music of this era. This is clearly a concept-driven package, geared toward the repertoire and inattentive in some respects; though jointly credited to Gorisek and Cameron-Wolfe, it takes some major deductive reasoning to arrive at the realization that Gorisek plays the whole set save the ballet "Uspud," which is played by Cameron-Wolfe. LTM credits the license for "Uspud" to Furious Artisans, so one would assume that it is the same recording used on Furious Artisans' release Paris X, which featured a version of the work as narrated by Kathryn Philip. It appears as though in this version the narration has been removed, but absolute confirmation of this was impossible, as the copy of the second disc sent to AMG turned out not to be playable. It is valuable to have a package that represents Satie's Rosicrucian music as a single unit, but the "detailed" liner notes within don't amount to a lot, and what's there is reproduced in tiny print over a busy background and is hard to read. LTM's Erik Satie: Musique de la Rose-Croix is a great idea and someday, someone will do this right, including the little bit of vocal and instrumental music that exists from this time and bringing in some detail on Satie's relations with Sâr Péladan. While the music -- what we could hear of it -- sounded fine, the many frustrations of dealing with the package itself tends to make this release more trouble than it is worth.
