Program Notes

This tranquil French work by Erik Satie, with its simple yet eloquent melodies and quasi-modal harmonies, has been sensitively arranged by this most skillful writer of outstanding works for young band.

- Program Note from publisher


The Gymnopédies or Trois Gymnopédies, are three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist Erik Satie. He completed the whole set by 2 April 1888.

The work's unusual title comes from the French form of gymnopaedia, the ancient Greek word for an annual festival where young men danced naked – or perhaps simply unarmed.

These short, atmospheric pieces are written in 3/4 time, with each sharing a common theme and structure.
