Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • French composer Erik Satie composed some of the most mystifyingly beautiful music in the piano literature, much of which is in constant demand for live performance and recordings.
  • Pianist Chisako Okano studied piano in her native Japan and then Germany, and leads a productive concertizing career.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Okano is mesmerizing. Each of the 24 pieces represents Satie in his understated melody and simple accompaniment style. Okano's playing is beautiful and the recording very good, so if you want a collection that very rarely rises above a medium volume, never gets loud, and with no fast notes (outside of an occasional ornamented melody) or exciting music, this is perfect for you.
