Gymnopédie No.2 Satie Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
The instructions for Erik Satie's Gymnopédie No. 2 are "slowly and sadly", perhaps befitting the "ceremonial choral dances performed at ancient Greek festivals" known as the Three Gymnopedies (1888). Erik Satie (1866-1925) seems to have been as enigmatic as his music. A contemporary of Debussy (who he met in 1890), his economical writing style, featuring simple melody and often unresolved harmonies, became trendy among young Parisian composers beginning around 1910. An interesting listen is Debussy's orchestral arrangement of the Gymnopedies.
