Erik Satie's collection features a diverse array of compositions, ranging from elegant waltzes like Valse-ballet and Fantasie-valse, to playful pieces, and rarer, such as the poems "Jack in the Box" and Le Boeuf Angora (The Angora Ox). " Notably, certain pieces like "Les pantins dansent" are rarely recorded in their solo-pianistic version, and especially "Imprial-Oxford", a short and simple ragtime, stands out as a very infrequently recorded piece, showcasing Satie's less explored yet intriguing works. The lyrics of the two valses, "Je te veux" and "Poudre d'or", delve into amorous themes, at times with a provocative undertone. Satie's ability to infuse romance and playful charm into his compositions adds a unique dimension to these pieces, further highlighting his versatility and innovative compositional spirit.
Some of these pieces have gained immense popularity over the years. Satie was not only a composer of rare intelligence but also a visionary capable of pioneering new paths in the field of music. The pianist Alessandro Deljavan, who garnered millions of enthusiasts with his previous contribution on Satie, here contributes to the development of Erik Satie's complete works with an album that includes all the cabaret music, which Satie himself played in botes de nuit, and the music derived from his two poems, "Le boeuf Angora" and "Jack-in-the-Box," also seldom recorded in solo piano form.
