67 of 70 people found the following review helpful By David J. Gilhooly III on December 3, 1999
Format: Paperback
This is a very nice and large collection of Satie's works for piano. All of the pieces are reproduced from the original publications and Satie's comments in the original French are included and translated on the bottom of the pages. All three versions of Gymnopedies are there, but only the first 3 Gnossiennes. Many of Satie's compositions aren't divided into measures and it is very interesting to see how he actually wrote the music with his comments. Pieces like the Gnossiennes should be listened to before you actually play them. A good interpretation of all 6 is the CD Satie, 3 Gymnopedies and other piano works by Pascal Roge. Mr. Roge interprets the music beautifully. Then you can play them. Some of the other works included in this book are Sarabandes, Pieces froides (very interesting music), Embryons desseches, Morceaux en frome de Poire and there are 3 pieces written for 4 hands.

Satie's work has always fascinated me. Playfulness, melancholy, and simplicity - and always easy to recognize. The scoring is, to my not expert ear, very well done and easy to read. I would rate this 5 stars were it not for the deplorable predilection of print music publishers to bind books such that they do not open and lay flat on the piano without breaking the binding. Music is to be played first and last and not, at least not for old fogies like me, just read.

It is almost perfect, it has Satie's more famous pieces, the only thing I did not like was that it does NOT have the Gnossienne N 4, 5 and 6... it has the 3 first Gnossiennes though.
Very satisfied with this...

Admittedly, I didn't know much of Satie's music. I ordered this after a friend of mine performed a Gnossienne at a home concert. I have certainly enjoyed playing this music myself but a few things about this volume. The first is that you need a photocopier or you need to be able to memorize quickly: there are numerous two page works where the pagination is exactly wrong, where you must turn the page awkwardly in the middle of every piece -- and these page turns do not occur during pauses. By contrast, I just ordered the Barenreiter edition of the Bach French Suites, and the page turns are all placed with great consideration. It can be done!

The other is that this collection is chock full of works for piano four hands. (I didn't know he wrote so many!) You might feel teased if you lack a co-conspirator.

Finally, there is the Nachlaß not included, e.g., the Gnossienes 4 - 6. Any collection of Schubert or Chopin includes a fair amount of posthumous material. Not so Satie?

The Title of this book "Gymnopedies, Gnossiennes and Other Works for Piano" implies the complete Gnossiennes are
included, but the book lacks # 4,5 and 6

I have tried to find such a compilation for so long that I almost quit, until I tried amazon. It is very easy to read and the translation is very nice.
Very recommended for any Satie fan and player.

Despite "GNOSSIENNES" in big print on the cover, and there being only six of them, this has only three. Some notes on how to interpret his music would also be nice, since he doesn't appear to have used the notation I'm familiar with, at least for dynamics.

Erik Satie is a auteur and this collection of his work is an amalgam of his genius. The pieces are uniquely notated and composed, and are accessible to even the beginner, particularly the Gymnopedies. Deserves a place in any pianist's library.
