Satie: Gymnopedies - 1000 Years of Classical Music Vol. 74
`He was certainly the oddest person I`ve ever known,` said Stravinsky.
Stately and serene, Erik Satie`s Gymnopédies offer music of radical simplicity and transcendent beauty, from a composer who defied convention in his music and in his personal life.
This album is part of 1000 Years of Classical Music - a series of 100 volumes charting the history of music to be released on ABC Classics. More information can be found at the project`s website; www.1000YearsofClassicalMusic.com.
