Erik Satie is often commented as an “absurd, strange, modern, mind opening” musician, his name was extremely controversial in the early 20th Century. He strived for breakthroughs in his composition and the idea of music. Satie was befriended with Picasso and Cocteau and worked with them in some theatre works, often accompanied with body movements and visual effects. Unlike other composers, Satie’s music was usually performed in cabarets and music café instead of standard concert hall, this was to create a unique atmospheric experience to the audience, and for audience of diverse cultural background. Though Satie’s modernism was not widely accepted at his time, his influence to later composers such as Ravel, Les Six, and John Cage was strong.

In this concert, soprano Florence Cheng, pianist Cynthia Chan, and dancer Anh Ngoc Nguyen will present a collaborative concert about the inner self of the composer, in Erik Satie’s style.
