Notes and Editorial Reviews
With this recording, Alexandre Tharaud aims to serve justice to Erik Satie - the real Erik Satie. Alexandre Tharaud wants to reveal the coherence between Satie's life and music, with a double CD-Set full of surprises and humour! The first CD is devoted to piano solo works; the second one to duos - and many world premiere recordings! Featuring well-known artists such as chanson singer Juliette, violinist Isabelle Faust, pianist Eric le Sage, trumpet player David Guerrier and tenor Jean Delescluse, this album will also include a private Internet access code to listen to bonus tracks and discover more about Satie's life and work! 'My aim in these two discs has been to offer the richest possible panorama of Satie's piano and chamber music, ranging over his whole lifetime. . . . Immersed in the world of Satie, we were touched, often deeply moved by the trust he shows in his interpreters.' Alexandre Tharaud
