We are in the middle of such turbulent times. And for me, music is the great healer. Yes, there is a role for Mozart, Haydn, and Schubert. And there are also times when the music of Erik Satie is able to work its wonders. Here is an example:
Satie: Piano Music (complete)
Performed by Jean-Yves Thibaudet (piano)
The 17th of May 2016 marks the 150th anniversary of Erik Satie’s birth, undoubtedly one of the most eccentric and colorful figures in the early 20th century music.
Erik Satie’s influence is felt in Debussy’s Impressionism, Stravinsky’s Modernism and the Minimalism of Philip Glass that followed.
This 6CD set presents Satie’s Complete Piano music. The solo works are performed by Jean-Yves Thibaudet with a CD of four-handed piano music performed by Pascal Rogé and Jean-Philippe Collard.
