Added to cart
Enigmatic and highly influential composer Erik Satie wrote over three dozen piano works between 1884 and 1920. Perhaps his best-known piece is his first Gymnopidie for piano that was completed in 1888. The piece consists of a simple accompaniment with a long soaring melody above it. The melody is instantly recognizable and was featured in films, video games, and popular songs. It is also found on most Top-50 lists of All-Time Classical Music Favorites. The long soaring melody and calm mood of this piece works beautifully for horn quartet. Each member gets the melody for an enjoyable performance. This piece is ideal for weddings, worship services, funerals, and any recital.
