Satie – 3 Gymnopédies



Written at the end of the 19th Century, these three works are modelled on classical Greek dances, with slow and gently lilting melodies and subtle harmonies in the background. They create an atmospheric and hypnotic mood like nothing else that had come before. And over a hundred years later they are as popular as ever. A wonderful way to wash away the stress of modern life. Ahhhh!

We have given you 2 versions: The 1st gives the melody to the first player, and the 2nd shares the melodic interest equally throughout.
