    The guitar adds a different tone to the whole piece. It doesn't have that haunting presence that the piano leaves you with. Not that that's a bad thing, just different. I like it.

      Psychospic true that, it doesn't have the haunting feel that the piano gives. I'm guessing it's because of the lack of sustained dissonant notes, that is impossible to achieve, to certain degree, on the guitar.

      I feel the strings lend a fluidity and intimacy lacking in the piano, with electric acoustic the shades are endless,
      this artist does an incredible job of tone with just the guitar

    I'm a guitarist and i loved this piece since I first heard it. Played on piano of course. The nonsensical thing is, i have NO idea where i first heard it, but it has haunted me for ages and i had nowhere to start in searching for its name. Lately it has popped up in TH-cam shorts as background music a couple of times, driving me crazy all over again. And over the last few months ive asked in the comments several times for a name of either the piece, the composer or a movie i might have heard it in. ANY clue as to where i picked up this damn earworm! Last night I finally got the name Erik Satie! This is my next project to learn on guitar. Such a deeply haunting piece of music to me. But I'm over the moon to have my answer, and many thanks to that guy who actually bothered to put me out of my misery!

And as perfectly played - speed and flow and nuance - as ever I have heard this. Please if you have not already give a gift to the future of this world and make a recording of as much Satie as you can. Your gift is precious rare and glorious. Thank you for this video 🙏🏼

    The first time I heard this played on piano it stuck in my head for weeks. I'd never heard anything quite like it before and those dissonances were a bit like a pain in the tooth that you can't keep your tongue from retuning to poke it just so you can feel the hurt it brings. Your guitar version is remarkably good in the sense that it captures that melancholic pain extremely well. There's great beauty in your interpretation of this piece and I thank you wholeheartedly for posting it. I will probably learn it one day for there's nothing like it as far as I know in the guitar repertoire .. well done sir.

      C'est la 2e version à la guitare que j'écoute, elle est très différente de celle-ci :
      th-cam.com/video/5Yk_ZNh3FkQ/w-d-xo.html
      Je la préfère à cause de la qualité du son, et aussi parce que la version d'Otto Tolonen me paraît trop lente, sans relief et lointaine. Et aussi, arriver sur scène sans avoir accordé sa guitare au préalable, je trouve que c'est un manque de respect au public.

    A very spatial composition and interpreted beautifully by Otto Tolonen. I have a recording of this on Piano and the guitar is just that little bit more expressive. The Gnossiennes are like abstract paintings comparing with the whimsical gymnopedies which have a more conventional feel to them. These pieces make me think of the long walks that Satie took around Paris and it's suburbs. I am sure that many of his compositions arose during these walks. The rhythm of walking and the mind under it's influence would have brought forth just such musical mysteries.

    Timing for this piece, whether on guitar or piano, is almost impossible to play at the proper tempo for all listeners. I don't know of any other piece that has so many preferring this to be slower.
    But, without a doubt, Otto nails Gnossienne 1 pretty near perfectly. And given the relative lack of sustain, relative to the piano that is, he manages to come pretty close to the piece as written and yet provide a wonderful second look at this great work.

      I think the tempo is your own feeling. I also dont know the ''original'' tempo. I just play according to my feelings. So it comes naturally

      the total opposit of the author purpose : this guitar performance proves this was meant to be played with exagerated shades of rythm and intensity ..... i think your comment suits way better the whole work of chopin .....( i hate rubato, but here in satie it is legit)

      As I understand it, Satie did NOT include notes relating to tempo so everyone that plays this piece is free to interpret as they see fit. My point is that no two people can agree on what is or is not the proper tempo. Further, this piece, along with, say, the first movement of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata," although trivially easy from an athletic standpoint, is nonetheless punishingly difficult to get the timing right.

    Bravo. You make it sound like it was composed for guitar.
    I love that, given that the piece needs air, you have such confidence in the precision of your technique that you just let the guitar almost play itself.

    This is so much better for me on guitar because it has a calm effect. I am not able to really describe the calm effect but it looks like it writes a story throughout the perfomance. The excellence of your timing, the flaire, it’s magnifique, I really like it.

    Beautiful! Always loved this piece, and just figured out the name. Considered trying to learn piano to play it, but figured my main instrument was best, and this has set a perfect benchmark for where I'd wanna get with it. So well done!
