Urtext edition with new variant readingsFor the first time Gnossienne No. 7 presented in its authentic form Easy to moderate difficultyTranslations of all Satie’s performance instructions (Ger/Eng)With practical suggestions for performance (Ger/Eng) by Steffen SchleiermacherWith a detailed foreword (Ger/Eng) and critical commentary (Eng)Between 1889 and 1897 Satie composed a series of piano pieces. He gave these the eccentric title Gnossiennes and provided consciously ironic performance instructions in which he satirized the excessive gestures of Romantic piano playing.This Bärenreiter Urtext edition offers new variant readings and presents Gnossienne No. 7 in its authentic form for the first time. Like the Gymnopédies (BA 10804), the Gnossiennes are particularly suitable for piano teaching because of their easy to medium difficulty level. Suggestions for performance are given by the Satie specialist Steffen Schleiermacher. In addition a detailed foreword by the distinguished musicologist Jens Rosteck provides valuable information on the background to the composition, its significance and interpretation.
