CHOICE Review

In this excellent book, Potter (Kingston Univ., UK) examines the life and works of French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925) and pays particular attention to the musical, intellectual, social, and political milieus in which Satie worked and lived. Though Satie's music may strike many as sui generis, Potter convincingly demonstrates the origins of his music in the organ grinders, hurdy-gurdys, and other mechanical musical instruments that were common features of late-19th-century Parisian life. Musical composition was Satie's chief mode of artistic expression, but Potter goes into great detail in her examination of the composer's prose writings and how these affected his instrumental works, particularly the works for solo piano. Potter also examines Satie's relationships with the Italian futurists, the artists associated with the Dada movement, and modernists such as George Antheil--providing material that makes this book required reading for those interested in modernism more broadly as well as for those studying Satie and his music. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty. --William E. Grim, Strayer University
