Between 1889 and 1897 Satie composed a series of piano pieces. He gave these the eccentric titleGnossiennesand provided consciously ironic performance instructions in which he satirized the excessive gestures of Romantic piano playing.

This Barenreiter Urtext edition offers new variant readings and presentsGnossienne No. 7in its authentic form for the first time. Like theGymnopedies(BA 10804), theGnossiennesare particularly suitable for piano teaching because of their easy to medium difficulty level.
Suggestions for performance are given by the Satie specialist Steffen Schleiermacher. In addition a detailed foreword by the distinguished musicologist Jens Rosteck provides valuable information on the background to the composition, its significance and interpretation.
