Erik Satie Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The perennially sublime, serene and superb French composer Erik Satie is covered, interpreted and re-worked by a whole three discs worth of musicians on this remarkable collection. Et le nouveaux jeunes - Version 2 contains the likes of Nils Frahm, Fred Longberg-Helm, Hauschka, Peter Broderick, Max Richter… Wow! On Arbouse Recordings.
Celebrating his 150th birthday (dude is getting on) this marvellously expansive collection brings together all the best known work from the legendary piano man from France, though as I read on the press blurb he was actually half Scottish. Within you'll hear all the prototypes for the minimalism we enjoy today as well as music he recorded for adverts, ballets and pretty much everything.
