Erik Satie became associated with the Rosicrucian movement in about 1890 and wrote several works under its influence. He began to gain prominence in 1911, when he was lauded as a forerunner of modern music; his admirers included Claude Debussy, Jean Cocteau, and the group of composers known as Les Six. Satie's music represents the first definite break with 19th-century French Romanticism.
