Satie – Gymnopédie No. 1 – Grimaud, Piano

The Gymnopédie No. 1 is part of Gymnopédies, three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist Erik Satie and published in Paris starting in 1888. The work’s unusual title comes from the French form of gymnopaedia, the ancient Greek word for an annual festival where young men danced naked — or perhaps simply unarmed. – Hélène Grimaud
