Synopsis

Simon on Erik Satie: "The preferred word for Satie's music is depouillement, meaning stripping down, sobriety, concision, or bareness. 'The artist does not have the right to dispose needlessly of the hearer's time.' Satie proclaimed. But no one else's bareness, save that of a Greek statue or Renaissance nude, seems so fully, sensuously self-sufficient." The unique collection displays the wit, humour, wide span of knowledge, and serious engagement with the arts that have made John Simon's work respected and recognised the world over.
