About ‘Gymnopédie No.1’

Satie, Erik (biography)
1866 , Honfleur
1925 , Paris
The Artist:
Eccentric French composer who influenced the Parisian composers of the early 20th century, including Debussy and Stravinsky. His ballet Parade was performed by Diaghilev and displayed a jazz influence. He is known for his comic and bizarre titles, such as ‘Three Pear-shaped pieces’.
Composed: 1888
Info: Probably Satie’s most famous piece. The Gymnopédies impressed many with their startlingly sparse compositions which conveyed powerfully simple emotive impact – Debussy himself was so impressed he orchestrated the pieces himself.
