As the first few notes sounded, I said out loud "Oohh, nice!" The whole piece makes a nice change from whatever preceeded.
Da iawn, bendegedig!

I love music in so many forms....more often raucous or with good lyrics.  But something about this Satie piece and Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor knock my emotional socks off.

This is my favorite song on RP, by a long ways.

Second is Ruby Falls by Guster.

Third is anything by LZ.

Fourth is Casimir Pulaski Day.

Agree with all comments.  He was a special kind of genius, and it awakens a seventh sense in me every time I hear Satie.  Thank you for playing it ...

Album coverWith the help of Shazam and some further digging around, I found out that this particular performance is by Pascal Rogé, not Frank Glazer as the cover shown here suggests. It is originally from the 1984 release “Satie - 3 Gymnopédies & other piano works”, and is also featured on some compilations like “After the Rain / Après la Pluie”. The original album is available on iTunes, so Bill should update the database and shopping links. And while he's at it, he may try to find a better copy because this one obviously has glitches.

(Edit: Bill has replaced it with a glitch-free rip, so enjoy {#Smile})

Gorgeous music!  : )
first heard (read) of Satie in "The Banquet Years: The Origins of the Avant-Garde in France, 1885 to World War I (1955) Roger Shattuck -  who said: "Everything has been said. But nobody listens. Therefore it has to be said all over again—only better. In order to say it better, we have to know how it was said before."

This is tamely named and simply beautiful. Not all his compositions are as easily grasped, but nearly all are worth the effort.

Nice try but no cigar. 64kbps would be audible across the entire recording and would sound as if someone would have poured glass shards in the piano. I don't hear that when playing the 192kbps stream at high volume. There are only a few momentary glitches, either this was ripped from vinyl and what we hear are simply scratches, or it was ripped from CD and errors occurred while reading. Maybe I'll just buy this CD and make a new rip myself…

This sounds very much like the Aldo Ciccolini version, he understood the slight delays in timing that pull on the heart.

That's the version I've got, and I agree, it's perfect.

Along with Debussy and Ravel, Satie composed what I'd call Impressionist music - very much of a piece with the art of the period.

Sorry if that sound pretentious - not meant to be!
