(from Piano Music of Erik Satie Volume 3)
(Music without bar lines and subtly modulating, which dates from the end of the Montmartre period, the of “the velvet gentleman”.)

      Trois Airs a faire fuir: (some nuances indicated by the author: “Obey; all whole; don’t worry; important; enigmatic; modestly; without wincing; to suck in; don’t bite off too much; cumulatively.”)

      Trois Dances de travers: (“Think twice before doing it; flat; with the side of the hand; to be visible a moment; a little cooked; don’t go too high.”)

Satie, the velvet gentleman’s own strange stories on the music itself.
