Le Piccadilly-Erik Satie



 Genre: Classical

Get Flash to see this player.

Beginning in 1888, Satie was a pianist in a number of Montmartre cafés of Paris (which were the meeting places of musicians as well as of writers and painters.) Around 1900, he produced several first-rate café songs. Le Picadilly is one of the music-hall pieces composed during this period. Satie's contribution to the world of popular entertainment was substantial.
This piece has a ragtime flavor with a march form. Marches were often the form of ragtime compositions and were a big European ingredient used in early jazz.
Le Piccadilly was orchestrated and arranged from a solo piano MIDI.

Stilted Ragtime
Interesting piece, Scotty. I guess it's the confines of the March form that gives it that odd, stilted feel. ;)

This has such an innocent feel
and I do like your orchestration! Interesting how form and style are (and have been)constantly evolving. Fun piece of music.

Full of energetic fun.
As you say, a fine piece. Also extremely well orchestrated and arranged, and nicely mixed; I can hear the details coming through even though it sounds as if the band is fairly large. Nicely done.

Nicely done
I know this piece very well from a cassette I was given in the late 70s (I've probably still got it somewhere!).

Very effective.

French Rag
A lovely arrangement from the piano score Scotty. It's light and yet captures all of the essence of rhythmic emphasis needed in the style. I hear pentatonic segments through much of the piece which I hadn't noticed in other rags before, but then it may have been a common component I hadn't heard in the past. A clean orchestration with what sounds like a flute violin doubling in the melody to soften things for use as cafe music in an intimate setting. Very nicely done!! And thanks for the dload.
