Notes & Reviews:

With this recording, Alexandre Tharaud aims to serve justice to Erik Satie - the real Erik Satie. Chock full of surprises and humor, Tharaud strives to reveal the coherence between Satie's life and music. The first CD is devoted to piano solo works. The second offers a selection of duos, many of which are 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.

World premiere recordings as well as relaxing favourites (including the famous Gymnopedie No. 1) from France's chicest, quirkiest composer. Alexandre Tharaud is renowned as an expert in French chamber music. Features acclaimed violinist Isabelle Faust. Beautifully packaged 2-CD set with access to downloads of extra bonus tracks. 'My aim in these two discs has been to offer the richest possible panorama of Satie's piano and chamber music, spanning his whole lifetime.Immersed in the world of Satie, we were touched, and often deeply moved by the trust he shows in his interpreters.' - Alexandre Tharaud

BBC Music Magazine
Few collections of Satie's music have captured this much misunderstood, multi-faceted composer remotely as well as this marvellous two-disc set from Alexandre Tharaud. His approach is more intelligent than the usual anodyne offerings... Tharaud is able to make the leaps from visionary to flippant, sublimely beautiful to downright silly with ease, but it is his willingness to take risks that really impresses... it is hard to think of a better introduction to Satie's music than this truly enjoyable collection.

The Observer
The popular first Gymnopédie and Gnossienne are here, beautifully played by Tharaud. Real interest lies in the second disc, with a mix of duets for piano with violin, voice, trumpet, plus veteran chanteuse Juliette, in "Chez le docteur", celebrating intestines, liver, kidney and spleen in sardonic chanson. All highly visceral.

The Guardian
It's carefully planned and never dull, largely thanks to Tharaud's exquisite keyboard shading.
