Notes and Editorial Reviews

Discs of Satie’s piano music are not in particularly short supply at the moment, but it is rare to find one as enjoyable as this. Ronan O’Hora is fresh and unpretentious in his approach and yet imbues every work with character and warmth. A quiet good-humour pervades the collection, from the marvellous false endings of Embryons desséchés to the intimacy of Je te veux. Strongly recommended.
