About '3 Gymnopedies no.1'

Artist: Satie, Erik (biography)
Born:1866 , Honfleur
Died: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'.
Composition Date:1888
Composition Info:Probably Satie's most famous piece. The Gymnopedies impressed many witht their startlingly sparse compositions which conveyed powerfully simple emotive impact - Debussy himself was so impressed he orchestrated the pieces himself.
