Record Store Day Exclusive! Aldo Ciccolini's album of Erik Satie piano pieces was originally released in 1956 and gets a special reissue just for Record Store Day 2016. Gymnopedies / Gnossiennes pretty much launched the "Satie boom" upon its release thanks to Ciccolini's brilliant playing. "Whether enigmatically serene, irresistibly charming or anarchically witty, the maverick French composer's miniature pieces remain astonishingly original. At every moment Ciccolini makes clear why, after he died in February 2015, the New York Times described him as a 'champion of Erik Satie.'" Limited to 1000 copies.
