Various | Cocteau, Satie & Les Six

The second release on new imprint Salon, whose catalogue will reflect the contribution of music to 20th Century avant-garde art. The celebrated L'Album Des Six of 1920 is now recognised as a landmark in 20th Century modern music. Similarly the artful relationship between the composers who formed 'Les Six' and their mentors Erik Satie and Jean Cocteau forms an important cornerstone of the inter-war avant garde.
This 74 minute anthology also includes music composed by Satie and Les Six for spectacles staged by Cocteau between 1917 and 1920, as well as Arthur Honegger's futuristic Pacific 231, and music by Georges Auric for five Cocteau films made between 1930 and 1959: Le Sang D'un Poete, La Belle Et La Bete, L'Aigle A Deux Tetes, Orphee, Le Testament D'Orphee. The deluxe booklet features many rare images, as well as detailed historical notes by noted author James Hayward.
