COCTEAU, JEAN, ERIK SATIE and LES SIX
An historic and useful collection comprising the celebrated 1920 recording 'L'album les Six', with six short piano pieces, one by each composer; 2 pieces recorded in 1929 with Cocteau himself speaking and singing and the Dan Parrish Jazz Orchestra playing; extracts of Auric's original soundtracks for five of Cocteau's films and - perhaps musically most important - Milhaud's extraordinary 'Le Boeuf sur la Toit' for small ensemble, Satie's 'Parade', for ensemble with gun, typewriter &c., and Honneger's graphic quasi futurist hymn to big locomotives, 'Pacific 231'; all introduced by Cocteau. Well-illustrated with comprehensive notes.L
