Full description

At the end of the 19th century, the composer Erik Satie lived in a small room he called his closet. It has been transformed into a small museum-box of surprises where you can see scores, manuscripts, an engraving by Picasso, projects for the ballet Parade and hear his Gymnopédies .


The Gymnopedias (Ancient Greek Γυμνοπαιδία / Gumnopaidía) were religious festivities held in Sparta in July in honor of Apollo and to honor the warriors who died in the Battle of the Champions.

It was after reading Gustave Flaubert's Salammbô that Satie had the idea for piano pieces inspired by the dances of Greek antiquity. The series of 3 musical pieces fall into the category of works from his Montmartre period. They were first published by his father Alfred Satie, but did not become popular until 1910, when the younger generation of French composers and performers discovered his music.
