xx Gymnopedie no. 1, the beginning

When you play the Gymnopedie no. 1 introduction, do you use one hand or both hands?

Any other recommendations for this piece?

xx Using the sustain pedal in Erik Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1
November 02, 2010, 04:13:04 PM by pbryld

Practicing this piece at the moment, but I haven't been able to find any sheet music with directions for the sustain pedal.

I guess one can guess when to press and release it, but I like being sure of what I am doing is correct :-)

Any help?

Thanks in advance.

xx beginner's question about satie
March 22, 2010, 10:17:18 PM by megwoodruff

I am an older adult beginner (3 months so far, with Albert's course, and sheet music of Fur Elise, Moonlight Sonata, part 1).  I am trying to learn Satie's Gymnopedie #1.  I have an embarrassingly simple question: is it the left hand that plays the alternating notes (g and d) and corresponding chords?  and then the right hand that comes in with the "melody", the upper voice in the upper G clef?

I downloaded the sheet music from here but it did not have fingering.

Forgive my ignorance; what I lack in experience, I make up for in enthusiasm to learn this amazing instrument!

xx Couple Gymnopedie 1 Symbol Question
March 31, 2005, 12:13:52 AM by 00range

Looking at the sheet music for Satie's Gymopedie 1, I'm confused right off the bat by a couple things.

The first is a symbol I'm not familiar with, it makes it's first appearance on the first beat in the first bar. I'm thinking it's some sort of rest.

Next, on the second beat in the first bar, there's a chord, BDF, and above it is a rest. What's this rest doing there?

What key is this piece in? C# and F# would be D Major, would it not? However, to my chagrin, I'm not familiar with all of my minor scales, and I would think that this piece would be in a minor key.

Finally, and out of curiosity, what exactly is a Gymnopedie?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
