Gymnopedie 2 by Erik Satie

Gymnopedie 2 by Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Written in 1888, the 3 piano pieces entitled Trois Gymnopedies are probably French composer Erik Satie’s most famous work. Gymnopedies named after the Gymnopaidiai festival of ancient Sparta. These short, atmospheric pieces are written in 3/4 time, with each sharing a common theme and structure. Collectively, the GymnopĂ©die are regarded as the precursors to modern ambient music – gentle yet somewhat eccentric pieces which, when composed, defied the classical tradition. Erik Satie is today also considered to have been at the forefront of the impressionist movement.
