Erik Satie 'Trois Gymnopedies: Deuxieme Gymnopedie'

Erik Satie 'Les Trois Gymnopedies: Deuxieme Gymnopedie'

About as clued up on classical music as on advances in eye surgery here, but this little piano piece from avant-garde French composer Erik Satie is beautiful. Stripped of any pomp or grandeur whatsoever, its maudlin, reflective and uplifting all at the same time and liable to turn on the waterworks if you're in a delicate frame of mind. May also be conducive to beard growth and massive red wine and brie consumption.
