Erik Satie - L'Oeuvre Pour Piano
I first heard Satie's music in one of my favourite films, Peter Sellers' Being There, when I was younger, about a gardener who lives in the house of a wealthy old man, who has never known anything different, and has to move out after he dies. The music's there in all these tender moments, it seems to follow the wrong chords, and the movement of the melody is never obvious. It's ceremonial. It always makes me feel something.
