Erik Satie
Recommended Recordings



"My dream is to be played everywhere, not only at the Opera."

Satie: The 4 Handed Piano
(Pascal Roge and Jean-Philippe Collard, pianos; Chantal Juillet, violin )
French pianists Roge and Collard deliver one of the more interesting discs of Erik Satie available, bypassing the flowery sentimentality that flaws so many Satie discs. Here they perform "Parade" without the orchestra or pyrotechnics (no gunshots or sirens) to reveal the piece's inner beauty--tempo changes, mood swings, and all. Lesser-heard gem "Things Seen to the Right and Left (Without Eyeglasses)" is Satie's only work for violin and piano; it's a short work filled with charm. ("Fumbling fugue," anyone?)
