Erik Satie’s 1894 influential piano work arranged for string orchestra, pizz. sempre (also works with mandolin orchestra)
The ’tempo markings’ (e.g. ’Calm and profoundly sweet’, ’Without pride’) are as in the original. The overall tempo should be slow. (’RIDEAU’ means ’curtain’)
The original has no time signature or measures, no key signature and no dynamics.
Time signatures have been added to facilitate rehearsal. In performance there should be little or no sense of meter.
Follow standard practice for accidentals through the measure.
MP is a suggested dynamic as a starting point.
The chord on the downbeat of m. 22 has been re-written to avoid double-sharps. The bass note in m. 24 has been changed to fix what I believe is an error in the original.
Mandolins should tremolo tied notes only.
Score Exchange has two methods of display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with modern Mac computers or mobile devices.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
