9 May 2016

Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s recordings of Erik Satie’s Complete Works for Solo Piano are to be released as a box set by Decca on 13 May to celebrate the composer’s 150th Birthday on 17 May.

Renowned for his interpretations of Satie’s music, Thibaudet started recording the complete works in 2002 and commented to The Telegraph that “When I play Satie live, it's as though a spell is put on the audience”.

This new box set also includes a bonus album with four-handed piano music performed by Pascal Rogé and Jean-Philippe Collard.
