Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    75:05
"(Satie) wrote some charming and occasionally eccentric piano pieces. A substantial selection of 38 of them appear on this well recorded BIS issue, which lasts a generous 78 minutes. What makes it especially interesting is that Noriko Ogawa plays on an 1890 Érard ... as such, this is a charming issue, as well as an extremely useful one for anyone who wants to discover the many joys of Satie’s piano music ... if Satie is a new name to you, please listen and hopefully be as entranced as I have always been by this stuff."
- Classic FM

"... if you’re starting a collection of the solo piano pieces, you should start here. You’d expect Noriko Ogawa to excel in this repertoire. And this disc’s pleasures are enhanced by her playing on an Érard grand built in 1890, its transparent, light timbre stripping away the thick muddy varnish with which some pianists coat Satie’s music. The flavours are more pungent and less bland ... the joy of a compilation like this is losing oneself in the lesser known miniatures and you’re continually reminded that Satie was a wiser, more knowledgeable character than he’s often given credit for."
- The Arts Desk

Japanese pianist Noriko Ogawa kicks off her series of tribute albums to Erik Satie with this release, recorded on the same instrument Satie himself might have played, an 1890 Érard grand piano.

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!
