Welcome to Day Three of Erik Satie Week on IPR's Kids Commute!
This week, we're listening to music written by the delightful oddball French composer, Erik Satie.
Today, music from a ballet that wound up getting Satie sent to jail! Keep your ears open for the weird instruments that director Jean Cocteau requested for the score (Pistols! Typewriters!).
Parade: Petite Fille Americaine ("Little American Girl")
Antal Dorati/Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra

Here's a video of some of those Pablo Picasso costumes in action - an excerpt from "Parade."
