Erik Satie

Erik satieJE TE VEUX (我要你)
Chanson de Caf’Conc
Erik Satie, 1897


His love affair with the painter Suzanne Valadon inspired the young Satie for his most famous chanson. "Je te veux – I want you!" – an absolutely unmistakable message to the beloved. Today, Satie is well known for a different composition: his three 1888 Gymnopédies for piano are equally appreciated by listeners and performers for their melancholy simplicity. The three quarter time has our music box melody in common with them; however, the grace and freshness of Satie’s chanson recall the music of the Montmartre nightspots. Paris mon amour!
