Preview: Erik Satie with Mary Davis

Be sure to tune in later this week for episode 6. Or better yet, subscribe to Off the Shelf's updates by email or via RSS using the links on the right side of this page so that you will be notified whenever I add to this site.

In episode 6, I'll be talking with Mary Davis, associate professor and chair of CWRU's Music Department about her biography of French composer Erik Satie. Coupled with episode 5, it's like a mini-theme centered on fin de siecle Paris!
