Erik Satie’s music is characterised by its unconventionality, simplicity and clarity. Whereas many of his works were dismissed by contemporary critics as ‚too excentric‘, the dreamy »Gymnopedies« have today found their way even into TV advertisement. The »Gnossiennes« are also remarkable in many ways: the musical text, for example, shows no bar lines whatsoever, instead one finds mysterious playing instructions which would later become the composer’s musical mark. One of these instructions by Satie is especially recommended for the listeners of Lars David Kellner’s Satie recording: ‚Commune with your own heart‘.
