AllMusic Review by

Naxos' Chill with Satie presents 20 of the composer's most relaxing compositions, including Gymnopédie No. 1 (in both piano and harp renditions), Première Pensée Rose + Croix, Caresse and Gymnopédie No. 3. While the album's concept is simple, it features a good sampling from Satie's major works, such as Trois Gnossiennes, the complete Trois Gymnopedies as performed by a symphonic orchestra, and Sonneries de la Rose + Croix. The collection also alternates between larger and smaller-scale compositions, all of which give the album an unexpected amount of depth, if not diversity. diversity. Musiques Intimes et Secrètes: Nostalgia -- Froide Songerie -- Fâcheux Exe and Pages Mystiques: Fragment -- Vexations -- Harmonies are among the other highlights of this collection. It may not be the only Satie collection you'll ever need, but Chill with Satie is still a pleasant and soothing one to have around.
