Tune of the Day: Gymnopédie by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

The three well-known Gymnopédies by Erik Satie have inspired many people, including our guest composer Paul Merkus from the Netherlands. Fully in the style of the original masterpieces, this tune is also a “Gymnopédie”, with all its characteristic traits: it is relaxing, reflective, soothing, elegant.

This “fourth” Gymnopédie, marked “Lent et serein” (“Slow and serene”), is dedicated to the master Erik Satie himself.
