Satie, Gymnopedie 1
My teacher did explain how to play the following bars but I can't remember what he said. If anyone has the music, I'd be grateful if you could explain before my next lesson so that I can practise it correctly:
The Schirmer edition, Bars 9, 10, 11, 12. In the RH, F# is dotted minims tied across all 4 bars. Also in the RH, those 4 bars have a minim chord which is [rest]BDF# / [rest]AC#F# ; [rest]BDF# / [rest]AC#F#.
In other words, the F# is not only a tied note across all 4 bars, it's also in each individual chord. So do you press the F# in each chord, and if so, why does Satie also have it as a tied note. On the other hand, if you don't press the F# each time because the pedal retains the tied note, why does he put it in the chord.
I hope this is clear
