Erik Satie is among the most popular composers worldwide, and his most famous piano pieces such as Gymnopédie No.1 or Je te veux are instantly recognisable, having been used constantly in motion picture soundtracks and TV ads.
As a special bonus Olga Scheps recorded Gentle Threat by Chilly Gonzales, whom she frequently works together with on stage
Olga Scheps was born in Moscow in 1986, the daughter of two pianists, and discovered the instrument for herself at the age of four. She began studying the piano more intensively after her family moved to Germany in 1992. At an early age she had already developed her own unique style of keyboard playing, which combines intense emotiveness and powerful expressivity with extraordinary pianistic technique. Among those who discovered these talents was Alfred Brendel, who has encouraged Olga Scheps since she was fifteen.
Olga Scheps has already recorded 5 albums for RCA Red Seal. All her recordings ranked high within the German classical charts and were highly praised by the press. Her debut album Chopin immediately won the prestigious ECHO Klassik Award in 2010.
As a passionate chamber musician, she plays regularly with such artists as Alban Gerhardt, Daniel Hope, Adrian Brendel, Jan Vogler, and Nils Mönkemeyer.
“She makes notes shimmer like pearls.” - Die Zeit
