Erik Satie: Gymnopédie No. 1: Viola

Book Only | Viola
Composer Erik Satie
Arranger Wolfgang Birtel
Publisher Schott Music
Instrumentation Viola and Piano

The music scene took notice of Erik Satie (1866-1925) all of a sudden: The world premiere of his ballet Parade on 18 May 1917 caused quite a scandal. The production which involved Sergey Diaghilev with his 'Ballets Russes', Pablo Picasso (scenery and costumes), Jean Cocteau (story) as well as Léonide Massine (choreography) divided the music scene of Paris, yet made the composer widely known. Satie who hardly had had any solid musical training and lived in Paris for almost all his life developed a new musical style, in deliberate rejection of the 'Wagnérisme' of his time.

Classical form models, new harmonies, stylistic ease, meditative and clownish elements amalgamated in an original way, the perfect example being his 3 Gymnopédies of 1888 the first of which was here arranged for a solo instrument with Piano accompaniment: Thus, it is now possible, even for non-pianists, to play this famous miniature by Satie. Thanks to its easy playability, it can also be used for educational purposes.
