ric Alfred Leslie Satie (UK: /ˈsæti, ˈsɑːti/, US: /sæˈtiː, sɑːˈtiː/, French: ; 17 May 1866 – 1 July 1925), who signed his name Erik Satie after 1884, was a French composer and pianist. Satie was an influential artist in the late 19th- and early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd.

Boston: Twayne Publishers, 1988. Boston: Twayne Publishers, 1988. The book is illuminating in making its technical points together with obser-vations on what is being expressed by the music. For example, we learn about the block-like construction of Parade, its "geometric shapes and interesting cubistic complexes" (p. 199), and are told too about its "air of pessimism and bitterness" (p. 200).

Gillmor's book is a combination of biography, social context, and musicological analysis of Satie's works. As biography, it does not replace Rollo H. Myers's Erik Satie (London, 1948; New York, 1968); and as contemporary social history, it fails to supersede Roger Shattuck's The Banquet Years (1968. However, the thoughtful and detailed discussion of each of Satie's compositions breaks new ground, making this a valuable contribution to Satie literature. Gillmor's literary style is colorful but overwordy and rambling, except for the technical discussion,.

Erik Satie: Vexations. Depending where one stands on the issue, LTM's Erik Satie: Vexations represents either the final realization of a key work frequently misrepresented in recordings or the most impractical release since Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music. Vexations is a Satie composition dating from about 1893 not published until two decades after his death, it consists of four enigmatic phrases: a single, rather awkwardly stated chromatic figure in the left hand only, followed by a tritone based, chorale-like harmonization of this same bass.

This is about the most thorough account I have read regarding the music of Erik Satie and is essential for anyone with an interest in the subject. It is not so great, in my opinion, as a biography -- not that it does not cover his life, just in that I have read better. For a modern biography which is reasonably short but complete, get the Mary Davis book Erik Satie (Critical Lives) (my favorite as a biography); for a better view of Satie in his artistic environment, get that by Harding Erik Satie (it is also a fun read and great for an understanding of the context). For a lighter treatment, there is another book with a short bio but lots of pictures (a treasure!) by Ornella Volta Erik Satie (The Pocket Archives Series) . This volume by Gillmor is academic and technical; it does contain some good biographical information which is missing from other referenced books, but mainly presents a different side of the composer's history with the more bizarre aspects played down. Vital in its own way, but those with an interest in the massively strange character of Erik Satie himself should look elsewhere. I like the books which show Satie for the true odd duck which he was -- one of the greatest eccentrics of the late 19th / early 20th century should be given his due.

Gillmor's is the best Satie bio you can find. I've read others but this one is the most complete and thorough, going from analyses of "Vexations" and his more occultic deviations to his artistic associations with other artists of the era. It's a highly technical, personal and yet readable bio and a must for anyone with an ear for the avant garde or just good music! Bravo!

Alan Gillmor, Professor of Music at Carleton University, Ottawa, is one of Canada's leading musicologists. His "Eric Satie" is excellent. While his detailed analyses of Satie's musical works may not appeal to non-professionals, they are very welcome to performing musicians and writers on music. Highly recommended.

Gillmor's `Erik Satie' is a detailed and scholarly work while at the same time being extremely readable. It cannot be compared with either Myers's flamboyant `Erik Satie' or Shattuck's `The Banquet Years' both are excellent, but each is written from a different perspective with a different purpose and focus. It seems likely that the author of the Library Journal review (posted here), either knew nothing about Satie and avant garde music or only scanned Gillmor's book. Having read all three and studied Satie and avant garde music as part of my university course, the library review seems quite foolish.

Gillmor's book provides a great deal more factual information and analysis on Satie and his work, than both Myer's and Shattuck's books, and it is essential (as well as enjoyable) reading for anyone with a serious interest in Satie, avant garde music or a desire to understand the origins and development of 20th century music.

Hello,
This is not a review of my book, 'Erik Satie,' but rather a query. I am wondering why you choose to reprint a rather shabby treatment of the book from an insignificant publication such as 'Library Journal' when the book enjoyed almost uniformly excellent reviews in the major scholarly press world-wide (e.g., 'Musical Quarterly,' 'Musical Times,' 'Music and Letters,' 'Music Review,' etc.) not to speak of a glowing major review in the prestigious 'New York Review of Books' by the distinguished scholar Roger Shattuck? The 'Library Review' items are hastily written thumbnail sketches of a single paragraph aimed at busy librarians, not thoughtful major reviews written by specialists in the field. Considering that Amazon is in the business of selling books, the reproduction of this rather negative paragraph rather than one of the numerous glowing reviews from scholars far better placed than Ms. Kiraly is puzzling. It does both Amazon and myself a disservice. Now that the book is out of print it probably doesn't matter. But I would be pleased to provide a full dossier of reviews if you wished. At the very least I would be pleased if you would pull Kiraly's superficial paragraph. It really does misrepresent the book, unless you believe that all the other reviewers are wrong. Thank you. Sincerely, Alan M. Gillmor PS: I filled in the star rating only because it was mandatory!
