Sonatine Bureaucratique or "Bureaucratic sonatina" is a piano composition by Erik Satie, and is a pastiche of the Sonatina Op. 36 N° 1 by Muzio Clementi.Satie’s sonatina, even shorter than Clementi’s example, was composed July 1917, and published the same year. The composition is in three small-scale movements.From a formal point of view the sonatina is however Satie’s most outspoken neoclassical composition. It is one of the exceptional piano compositions he wrote down with bar lines, which he probably would not have done if not for making an explicit reference to classicism.It feels very similar to Pulcinella by Stravinsky:classical with discords:.

This arrangement makes an interesting change for a piece by Satie, to all the arrangements here of Gymnopedie No.1!!!!
Fun for all the players!!I have included a Clarinet in A part in addition to the Clarinet in Bb.

Please check out  the rest of my Satie arrangements for varying instrument combinations :

3 Gymnopédies and 3 Gnossiennes. (sold separately and as collections).

Also: Rag-Time du Pacquebot (Ragtime of the Steampacket).
