    I am an 'adult beginner' of 3 years and I have found the first three Gnossiennes a pleasure to work on. I find the mood of them mesmerizing and a wonderful departure from all the other classical pieces in my books. I am so glad to have all seven under...

    one cover, to push me as improvement continues. I am now a HUGE Satie fan!

    These are great pieces that reveal just how innovative Satie was. They're all very effective and not too difficult to play.
