After the death of Erik Satie, dozens of unsent love letters were found in his Paris apartment. With this album, composer Elena Kats-Chernin and pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska finally send those letters off, in 26 meditative and passionate piano miniatures inspired by Satie’s extraordinary life and music. The works reflect on idiosyncrasies and anecdotes from Satie’s life, ranging from seductive orientalism to hypnotic melodies reminiscent of the groundbreaking, transcendent beauty of Satie’s own piano pieces. The buoyant rhythms and rhapsodic harmonic style that have brought Kats-Chernin a reputation as one of the best-loved composers of her generation provide the perfect lens to reflect on a musical great of the previous century.

"Satie’s life was a fascinating, fervoursome affair, from the first strike of love and then lifelong estrangement with artist and muse Suzanne Valadon, to the unexpected celebrity and conflict of his last 10 years. After he died, friends gaining access to his apartment, for the first time in almost three decades, found conditions both perplexing and romantically fastidious in their own way: two grand pianos one atop the other, one chair, one table, seven velvet suits and the love letters: many, many unsent love letters."
- Tamara-Anna Cislowska

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
