Trois morceaux en forme de poire

Erik Satie

The somewhat wayward French composer Erik Satie was often criticized that his compositions would have no form. So he collected some pieces into a suite for four-handed piano and put them in the shape of a pear. It should not be forgotten that the French word "poire" doesn't just mean "pear", but also "idiot". It also fits his humor that the work consists of seven movements – not three.
