Erik Satie: The Complete Solo Piano Music
Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano
2016 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the eccentric French composer, Erik Satie. A fixture in the avant-garde in Paris at the turn of the 20th-century, Satie was an important influence on such diverse figures as Stravinsky, Debussy,and Philip Glass. This new compilation includes 5 CDs of solo piano music performed by acclaimed French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet and a bonus CD of four-handed piano music with Jean-Philippe Collard and Pascal Roge. Magnifique!
