5.0 out of 5 stars SUBLIME RECORDING, RIDICULOUS PRICE., 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Not Found - Satie - Piano Works (the Royal Philarmon (Audio CD)
I discovered Erik Satie as a teenager, in the early seventies and like many people of the era, owned the John McCabe recordings of his works on Saga and EMI. These recordings were excellent and served me well for many years and I only bought the O'Hora recording out of curiosity. Well in this case the cat is still most definitely alive! This disc is a revelation, the playing is superb and I do not see how it could be improved upon, either from an audio point of view, or in terms of the sublime performance of Ronan O'Hora. His performance of Je Te Veux is on my desert Island list, alongside Glenn Gould's second recording of Goldberg Variations, Keith Jarret's Koln Concert and Aldo Ciccolini's complete Debussy piano works. I have just purchased Ciccolini's complete Satie piano music, so I'm looking forward to comparing this with the O'Hora disc. This disc is routinely available for 1p plus P&P on Amazon, but don't be put off by the price, this recording is of the very highest calibre.
