Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Erik Satie penned genuinely timeless hits, but his songs have not enjoyed equal attention. As Holger Falk and Steffen Schleiermacher demonstrate on this new recording of Satie's complete Mélodies et Chansons. The legendary eccentric's palette ranges from the tenderest seriousness to the crudest comedy; throughout his career he managed to survive in the bitterest poverty and supported himself as a "keyboard tinkler." The original humor distinguishing many of his piano compositions is also reflected in his songs.

Holger Falk and Steffen Schleiermacher prove to be the ideal advocates of Satie's music: without affected silliness but with fine humor and a good dose of irony, they make for an entertaining program with depth.
