Gnossienne No. 1 - Erik Satie

Post by Ronen from Accordion Love »

I'm in love with playing this piece. Haunting and slow - classic Satie vibe!
Lesson and sheet music: https://accordionlove.com/course/gnossi ... rik-satie/

Here is a discussion on Reddit about which scale Satie uses in the song:

I love the sound of this piece - interesting to read about that scale that Satie used.

Here is another Gnossienne - no.3 - played by Jo Brunenberg - a fine you-tubing accordionist from Holland.



..and this sheet music is good for accordion! It's quite playable.

Oooh. Love it! Haunting, similar to No. 1. Thanks!

I absolutely adore No. 3. The melody is other-worldly. I've been working on it for a few weeks and it's coming along nicely. I highly recommend this one - but No. 1 is also nice and a bit easier than No. 3.
