Erik Satie: Part One - Satie's musical and personal logic and Satie as poet, playwright and composer

Professor Robert Orledge, Dr Caroline Potter

STUDY DAY IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INSTITUTE OF MUSICAL RESEARCH, SCHOOL OF ADVANCED STUDY, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON AND KINGSTON UNIVERSITY

Robert Orledge, Emeritus Professor at the University of Liverpool and a panel of experts

In addition to his music, Satie left a remarkable set of writings, including Le Piégede Méduse (1913) featuring music for prepared piano.  Satie was a colourful figure in the early 20th century Parisian avant-garde.  He was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd.

This study day will include material on French cinema, lecture/recitals and a performance.

This part of the study day included the following talks:

Satie's musical and personal logic by Robert Orlege

Satie as poet, playwright and composer by Caroline Potter

Robert Orledge became Professor of Music at Liverpool University in 1991, specialising as a historical musicologist in the way composers composed, and publishing numerous books and articles on Fauré, Debussy, Koechlin and Satie. Since taking early retirement in 2004, he has become a ‘creative musicologist’, concentrating on completing and orchestrating Debussy’s unfinished works. His completion of The Fall of the House of Usher was successfully premiered at the Bregenz Opera Festival in 2006, alongside the Chinese ballet No-ja-li in Los Angeles. His Nocturne pour violon et orchestre was broadcast from the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in November 2011 with Isabelle Faust as soloist and Heinz Holliger conducting, and his most recent completion is Le Diable dans le beffroi. His volume of Debussy's orchestrations is due to be published in the Durand Oeuvres completes (V/11) later this year.

As a specialist researcher in French music since Debussy, Dr Potter has published widely and is frequently invited to give talks at other universities and for organisations such as the Gergiev Festival (Rotterdam), ABC Australia and the BBC. Since the publication of her book on Henri Dutilleux in 1997, she is recognised as the leading authority on this composer; in February 2008 she was involved in the BBC/Cardiff University 'Discovering Dutilleux' weekend, appearing on Music Matters and Performance on 3 (Radio 3), and in September 2009 she was a featured speaker at the opening concert of the London Symphony Orchestra's season. She also researches in the field of music and gender studies and recently published a monograph on Nadia and Lili Boulanger.
