  Volume V (From 1914 to 1920)

Comments
Highly descriptive, “Sports et Divertissements” are compared to “musical hai-kais” by Cortot. These delicious “miniatures”, one choral and twenty instantaneous pieces, thrill us from beginning to end. You will feel a boogie-woogie in “Les Courses”, and recognize “Tea for Two” (ten years in advance) in “Le Golf”. If you have the possibility, read the incredible “stories” Satie wrote for these miniatures...Enjoy the parody on Clementi, listening to “Sonatine Bureaucratique”. Go on and arrive at Satie’s best, in my opinion: “Les Cinq Nocturnes”. Satie is complete. No more eccentricity. No more “stories” above the pentagram. Absolute maturity. Pure music.  Strange and melancholy melody coming from afar, from stars, from heavens, who knows?
