The first movement of this instantly recognisable piano sonata starts off quietly to set a calm, delicate and slightly melancholic tone. As the emotions rise and fall, the intensity swells and diminishes gracefully. The Piano Sonata No. 14 op. 27 no. 2 in C sharp minor by Ludwig van Beethoven, completed in 1801, is also known as the Moonlight Sonata. Beethoven himself gave his work the nickname Sonata quasi una Fantasia ("... quasi a fantasy"). The term "Fantasia" refers to the unusual sequence of movements of the sonata. This explains the untypical tempos of the respective movements for the conventional sonata form. The work does not have a first (fast) movement in sonata form, which sonatas of this period usually contain. It begins with an Adagio, followed by a more lively Allegretto with Trio, followed by a fast, highly dramatic Finale, which has the structure of a sonata-form. What is striking here is that the tempo increases from movement to movement. Franz Liszt characterized the piece by describing the second movement as "a flower between two abysses".

One of the most famous pieces of music for solo piano. Despite having the instruction, 'Lent et douloureux', (slow and painfully), this track is referred to for calm, relaxing and meditative purposes. Atmospheric and ambient.

A beautiful and melancholic ambient piano track. A simple, nostalgic piano melody played with grace, finely balanced on top of a strange ambient background texture. Excellent for drama, film soundtrack work, or any sincere, thought provoking web site or film footage.

Slow, ('Lent' in French), and free-flowing, this track evokes an almost daydream like state. This is the first of three works to be given the name Gnossienne name by Erik Satie to reflect this new style of composition.

Slow and grave, ('Lent et grave'), the third Gymnopedie is perhaps the most heartbreaking. The whole ambience is punctuated by mournful melodies that have become so popular in modern productions.

The third in a series of highly expressive and free-flowing compositions by Satie is again at a slow pace like the first one. This gives the track a sombre and hypnotic quality. Creates an almost haunting atmosphere.

Gymnopedie No.2 has an aura of sombreness about it. 'Lent et triste', (slow and sad), is the instruction to the player. Very atmospheric with a feeling of calm resignation. Huge amounts of space in the composition for thoughtful reflection.

The second Gnossienne has the instruction, 'avec ?tonnement', (with astonishment), to instruct the player to play slightly faster than the other two pieces. Still has lots of space and freedom of expression.

A very warm and appealing track. Hard to pin down, with elements of ambient, pop, new-age and urban. Repeating patterns of guitar and electric piano create a dreamlike, textured sonic image. Great for use with visual media, carries a lot of emotion and reflection. A sort of kaleidoscope of sound and music. Thoughtful, unique and interesting. This track is available in many different versions, with or without the high guitar notes, and with or without the drums.

A heartfelt, melodic pop, rock crossover track that starts softly and then grows to a sweeping, emotional chorus part. Intense, romantic, with rock band plus orchestral strings in an arrangement similar to Coldplay etc. Heartbreak, young people, first love, loss, sorrow or just personal stories, soul searching. Would go well with youth drama, scenes of inner turmoil, thoughts and perhaps personal conflict or great love.
