The concert took place on Sunday,October 17, 2010 in the Christianskirche-Hamburg
in the series FORUM-NEUE-MUSIK:
(...) The fact that Satie did not intend to give an accurate musical representation of the storyline is evident from the following statement: "The orchestra should not grimaces when a person enters the stage (...) We would have to make a kind of music decoration, a musical climate in which the persons move and speak. No arias, no 'Leitmotifs'. "(...)
The 'leitmotif' technique (Richard Wagner) follows closely to the text, while Satie with his modular method just that avoids. Storyline and music run side by side (...) Satie wrote here already decor sonore immobile, musique d'ameublement.
