About '3 Gymnopedies no.1'
||Satie, Erik (biography)|
|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 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.|
