• With 2016 being the 150th anniversary year of the birth of Erik Satie, Barbara Hannigan and Reinbert de Leeuw present with expressive intensity and in a unique way, the fascinating sound world of this leading French composer and pianist. Hannigan and de Leeuw let us discover and experience Satie’s almost forgotten and unique vocal compositions: Trois Mélodies, Trois Autres Mélodies and Hymne. The main work and title of the album is the composition Socrate comprising of three parts - Portrait de Socrate, Les Bords d’Illissus and Mort de Socrate: music which sounds white, transparent and fragile.

• Barbara Hannigan (soprano) Reinbert de Leeuw (piano)
Reviews For Socrate - Erik Satie
Gramophone - Peter Quantrill
Award winning, Hannigan and de Leeuw brought their individual rays of sunshine to a dismal year. They unite for a coolly sensuous recording.
