MORE INFO

A special re-release for Record Store Day 2016, this LP of Gymnopédies, Gnossiennes and other piano pieces by Erik Satie salutes Aldo Ciccolini, the Italian-born pianist who launched the Satie ‘boom' when this album first appeared in 1956. Whether enigmatically serene, irresistibly charming or anarchically witty, the maverick French composer's miniature pieces remain astonishingly original. At every moment Ciccolini makes clear why, after he died in February 2015, the New York Times described him as a "champion of Erik Satie." This special release is limited to 1000 copies.
