Though much of Erik Satie's music remains little known beyond the ranks of experts, his aesthetic of simplicity, irony, and Gallic whimsy has earned him a growing modern-day following. We hear several examples of his musical influence on this New Sounds, including Philip Corner's "Two French Tritone Dominants," and Bob Samarotto's "Little Piano Book," among others.
