Just as the Trois Morceaux en forme de poire in fact comprise seven pieces, so Erik Satie's Trois Gnossiennes come from a group of seven compositions. Inspired by a visit to the pavilion of exotic music at the 1889 Universal Exhibition,the 'gnossian mode' charmed the composer to such an extent that he returned to it seven times in eight years, despite the fact that his music was otherwise characterized by perpetual renewal.
Following the six Gnossiennes already released, the 7th Gnosienne is published in this album for the first time.Seven timeless and enigmatic pieces for Piano solo by forward thinking and avant garde French composer, Erik Satie. There is a definite distant, Romantic quality running through these Six Gnossiennes, with the score interspersed with unusual and often surreal instructions for the performer. They are among the best known of all of the composer's works despite his intention that it should be wallpaper music - not to be heard, but overheard by an audience.

Ebenso wie die Trois Morceaux en forme de poire ursprunglich aus einer siebenteiligen Komposition stammen, sind auch die Trois Gnossiennes eigentlich sieben. Erik Satie war nach einem Besuch des Pavillons der exotischen Musik bei derWeltausstellung 1889 so fasziniert, dass er die gnossische Art' erfand und im Laufe von acht Jahren sieben Stucke dieser Art komponierte, was so gar nicht seiner Gewohnheit entsprach, sich immer Neuem zuzuwenden.
Dieser Band enthalt die Erstveroffentlichung der 7. Gnossienne sowie die sechs bereits erschienenen Gnossiennes.

De meme que les Trois Morceaux en forme de poire sont constitues en fait de sept pieces, les Trois Gnossiennes d'Erik Satie sont issues d'un ensemble de sept compositions. Inspires d'une visite au pavillon de musiques exotiques al'Exposition Universelle de 1889, le mode gnossien a tellement seduit le compositeur - pourtant coutumier du renouvellement perpetuel dans chacuned de ses oeuvres - qul'il y est revenu par sept fois en l'espace de huit ans.
S'ajoutant aus six Gnossiennes deja parues jusquici, la 7e Gnossienne est publiee dans ce recueil pour la premiere fois.
