About this Song
Satie's 'Gnossiennes' were composed in the late 19th Century. He coined the word to indicate a new 'type' of composition. The musical vocabulary is a continuation of that of the 'Gymnopedies.' 'Gnossienne No. 1' is the most well-known of these compositions, and the dreamy, ambient nature of the music lends itself very well to romantic and contemplative scenes. It has been used in many TV shows and films, most recently in 'Man On Wire.' This performance uses a perfectly sampled Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano, with subtle hall reverb for ambience.
