Erik Satie's "drame symphonique" was composed on a commission from the Princess Edmond de Polignac. Satie based his text on selections from the Plato works Symposium, Phaedrus, and Phaedo which mention the Greek philospher in the French translation by Victor Cousin. The work was first performed at the salon of Pricess de Polignac in April of 1918 with soprano Jane Bathori singing all four roles and the composer at the piano. This new vocal score, produced in an easy-to-read format, is a digitally enhanced reprint of the one first issued in 1919 by Editions de la Sirene in Paris. Also included is an English translation of the relevant sections from Plato prepared by Benjamin Jowett.
