Recording of the Month: Satie Socrate

Satie from Barbara Hannigan & Reinbert de Leeuw

This year it's the 150th anniversary of Erik Satie. So raise your bowler hat to soprano Barbara Hannigan and pianist Reinbert de Leeuw, who have put together one of the most interesting discs of the French composer's music to come out this year so far.

Satie's 1919 cantata Socrate is the centrepiece of this programme. Find out more about this unusual masterpiece in this podcast, plus hear extracts from the recording. This episode is presented by acting deputy editor Rebecca Franks and editorial assistant Elinor Cooper.
