“Sports et Divertissements” Piano Music of Erik Satie – Aldo Ciccolini (HMV Greensleeves)

This again is not made up of the ur-Windham Hill sentimentalismes for which Satie is so justly acclaimed as a cult figure these days, rather, more traditional sounding nocturnes and sonatas. Wrapped in an ersatz Terry Gilliam sleeve, this 1982 double Lp compilation on EMI’s classical own brand HMV Greensleeves label contains piano pieces stretching over roughly 30 years of the great man’s career recorded by Aldo Ciccolini between 1964 and 1971.
You must be doing something right if Pablo Picasso does you a caricature.

  1. Great cover! I’ve got Ciccolini’s recordings of Satie on a 5cd set, good value but not half as good looking as this.

  2. There are a bunch of other Ciccolini recordings (maybe the same ones plus more) on Angel that look really good–that’s what I’m on the hunt for now. The only other Satie I’ve got comes on 2 CD-R’s that my father made for me!
