Erik Satie’s Gymnopedies are a series of three short piano pieces that were first published in 1888. These atmospheric pieces, all written 3/4 time and sharing a common theme and structure, are recognised the world over and are his most famous compositions. The Gymnopedie No.1 is divided into two almost identical parts, with a steady accompanying rhythm of crotchet-minim that remains constant throughout. Although there are occasional dissonances the music seems impressively tension free.
