Les trois valses distinguées du précieux dégoûté

Sa taille  [0'49]
Son binocle  [1'01]
Ses jambes  [0'39]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Les trois valses distinguées du précieux dégoûté feature the most baroque verbal scaffolding Satie ever erected around his music, including quotations from La Bruyère, Cicero and Cato. Each waltz, lucid and poised, presents an aspect of the world-weary dandy: his waist, his spectacles and his legs. Forget Satie’s distracting commentary and you will find the Trois valses among the most elegant music he composed.
