This is the first of three Gymnopédies, the famous solo piano compositions that were composed by the French composer Erik Satie starting in 1888. The Gymnopédies are the first compositions with which Erik Satie tried to cut himself loose from the conventional 19th-century salon music environment.
This is a beautiful piece written in 3/4 time. It consists of an alternating progression of two major seventh chords. The first on the subdominant, G, and the second on the tonic, D. It has a jazzy and somewhat melancholic feeling. This piece is played on a Steinway concert piano and recorded with a calm and steady tempo to fit your projects perfectly. It is suitable for any of your projects needing a soft solo piano music.
