It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
It sounds nothing like Erik - not the melodic line, the harmonies, the piano figuration.
If you want a 'classical' composer that has a slight similarity, it would be Michael Nyman, though even so, no-one would mistake this stuff for Nyman either.

I kinda see what the person means about Satie (try the Gnossiennes) but basically this piece is structured like pop music: repetitive broken chord figuration in a repeating chord progression, with increasing liberties taken in the melodic voice. Maybe try other pop or new age pianists for music with greater similarity to this.
