Eric Satie wrote 3 piano pieces he called Gymnopédie.
This is a transcription of the second Gymnopedie for piano. Transcribed for piano and bassoon.
Catherine Marchese – Emile Naoumoff_02_Deuxieme Gymnopedie
Trying to find out Who transcribed it? – from the original solo piano to piano with bassoon – I googled until weary! … never did find out. Did Satie himself do it? Or the players on this piece? (Catherine Marchese and Emile Naoumoff) Some listener might leave a germain comment clearing this up! – please do if you’re out there.
Anyway it was so nice to be listening to Satie again this afternoon… what the heck – how about some more?! Here are three pieces joined together running approx. 8 minutes. (I love the first one)
1) 5ieme Gnossienne Modere 2) Caresse 3) Cafe-Concert Songs- Je Te Veux
