In 1903, Satie composed his famous cycle for piano duet with the provocative and ambiguous title “3 Morceaux en forme de Poire”. (In French, “poire” means “pear” but also “dimwit”). It is a detached and ironic commentary on the constraints of musical form.
Now this cycle is being published in a scholarly-critical Urtext edition for the first time. Convenient page turns, a score format, translations of the French expression and tempo markings, Satie’s enigmatic introduction, performance suggestions by the Satie specialist Steffen Schleiermacher and a detailed foreword by the renowned musicologist Jens Rosteck make the study and performance of these pieces a true pleasure.

• First scholarly-critical Urtext edition
• Of an easy to moderate level of difficulty
• Includes translations of all expression and tempo markings (Fr/Ger/Eng)
• Detailed foreword (Ger/Eng) and Critical Commentary (Eng)
