Variations on a Theme of Eric Satie
French composer Eric Satie was an eccentric but important musical figure in early 20th century music. These variations are based on the melody found in the first movement of his "Peccadilles Importunes" ("Annoying Offenses") of 1913. The four variations expand upon various rhythmic and melodic aspects of the theme, while broadening the limited harmonic vocabulary of the original.
Broege's variations shed very a imaginative light on Satie's original theme, and present a musical journey sure to enlighten and enhance the musicality of any orchestra.
