I SOLISTI, Jan Michiels piano

Satire Satie

Erik Satie, Igor Stravinski, Francis Poulenc

Satire Satie, the final part of the triptych, revolves around one of Satie’s most remarkable masterpieces: Parade, a notorious scandalous success in French music history. In it, Satie flirts with the attractions of nonsense and bad taste, but his gifted sense of musical humour rises above it all. 

Masterpieces by Poulenc and Stravinsky will join this orgy of 1920s French sound.

At your service are I SOLISTI, an Antwerp-based wind ensemble known for always playing on the edge and not shying away from adventure. 

Video artist Lise Bruyneel enhances the mood with some spicy text collages from writings by Satie as well as some of his equally eccentric contemporaries.
