“In the words of John Cage, Satie is indispensable,” No Exit artist director Tim Beyer said during a telephone conversation. “As iconic as Satie is, you don’t often see a concert presented in his honor.” On Friday, October 30 at Heights Arts, No Exit will launch their seventh season with what will be a year-long tribute to the music of Erik Satie.
“With Satieʼs 150th birthday approaching it seemed like an ideal time to showcase music from a composer who many see as the original musical dadaist,” Beyer said. The program will include Satie’s Nocturnes Nos. 1 and 2 as well as “Idylle” from Avant–dernières pensées. Additional performances will be held at Cleveland State University’s Drinko Recital Hall on Monday, November 9, and at SPACES on Saturday, November 21. All three concerts begin at 8:00 pm.
