Erik Satie's Gymnopedies were written for pianosolo but lend themselves perfectly to being played by other musicalinstruments too. Indeed, Claude Debussy arranged the first and thirdGymnopedies for orchestra.

This arrangement for flute withpiano accompaniment would fit nicely into a school concert programmeand is also perfect for wedding ceremonies.Performance time is approximately three minutes.

Breath marks are not indicated, as the long phrasesshould ideally be played in one breath if possible. A separate part is suppliedfor the soloist.

The composer's original autographed manuscriptshave been used as the initial source material, along with the very firstprinted editions published in 1888 and 1895. Obvious errors in these first editionshave been corrected and Satie's unconventional preference for distributing thenotes of chords across both staves has been ignored in favour of grouping thenotes together to facilitate chord recognition and performance.
