Gymnopedie No. 1 — Erik Satie

11 09 2010

Gymnopedie: ceremonial choral dances perfomred at ancient Greek festivals. (from the Three Gymnopedies for the piano book, published by Schirmer, Inc.)  Composed by Erik Satie, the first gymnopedie has the instructions, lent et douloureux — slowly and mournfully.  And as I’m still sad from the loss of my friend as well as the anniversary of 9/11, I thought this might be appropriate.

Just listen and relax…
