Besides the great composers like Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart, I also like the music of Eric Satie. I especially love his Gymnopédies (three similar piano pieces). They are so simple, but so lovely. I remember the first time I heard them. I just had to find out who the composer was and run out and get a recording.

Satie wrote underneath his self portrait :
"I have come into the world very young into an era very old."
