Trois Gymnopedies for Euphonium & Piano composed by Erik Satie (1866-1925). Arranged by Ralph Sauer. For euphonium & piano. French Impressionist. Advanced. Solo part and piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2621).
Satie wrote these three short, atmospheric pieces originally for piano in 1888. They are all in 3/4 time, sharing a simple, soothing, common theme and gentle in nature. Ralph Sauer has done a beautiful job of arranging these exquisite works for Euphonium and Piano in bass clef. The simplicity of the music is its genius. For moderately advanced performers, each movement is about 2 to 3 minutes in length.
