Gymnopédie No. 1 (string quartet)


Title: Gymnopédie No. 1

Composer: Erik Stie, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello

Printout: 6 pages

Notes: The evocative, jazz-like harmonies and ethereal melodies of Satie’s Gymnopédies make them popular with a wide range of listeners. This one, the first of the three, is the longest and best-known. The title comes from an ancient Greek dance, but Satie’s inspiration was probably found in the poetry and paintings of his impressionistic contemporaries.
