You may not have heard of the Gymnopedie No. 1, written in 1888, by Erik Satie, but you will have heard it in countless adverts and TV dramas. The piece is for solo piano and sounds deceptively simple, but it's all in the timing. Gymnopedie in French is a naked dance with song. I have chosen my favourite performance by Philippe Entremont, recorded by Sony. He plays it straight with the minimum of idiom but perfect timing.
I agree, Satie's piano compositions are utterly unique. The great thing about them is that they are almost all short, and many of them are quite memorable. The Gnossienne No. 1 is also wonderful, but really they all are.
