The GymnopĂ©dies by Erik Satie are three piano compositions of extraordinary beauty. Gentle, eccentric pieces which defied the classical tradition. The name GymnopĂ©die is thought to be a reference to Satie’s joke at a party when, concerned by his lack of formal qualifications, on being asked his profession, he replied Gymnopaedist – which means – ‘naked athlete’.
