    See Wikipedia talk:Stable versions#Testing --Francis Schonken 10:56, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
  • {{Certstablefalse|Badlydrawnjeff}} - as a test case, this is a poor one. No images in this diff, the style and prose are not easily read to someone with a music background, and I can only imagine what it might look like to someone lacking one. These issues would have further problems given that any "stable version" would result in more eyes looking at the article and making changes and expansions. --badlydrawnjeff talk 12:09, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Gnossienne No 1 Recording[edit]

Whoever recorded this, would you mind taking out the shuffling and alarm clock? Tha'd be nice. Other than that, good job on that run through.

Actually, the recording is quite bad. I suggest uploading the Lang Lang recording instead?

Also, when that recording is uploaded, it might be a good idea to add that to the Media section in —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:46, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

I removed the recording, as it is horrible in just about every way -- sorry to be blunt. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:02, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Uses in popular culture[edit]

One of the first three Gnossiennes was used in an episode of True Blood from season 2 - the episode that introduced the Dallas Vampires. Hope somebody can fill in the details. (talk) 14:50, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm curious: What purpose does this list serve? These are some of the best-known solo piano works in history, so a list of times it was used as background music in movies and television could surely go on to be much longer than the article itself. Shall we add a section to the Beatles article listing "Supermarket locations where Beatles songs have been played" ;)? I think that, if this list is kept, it should be restricted to examples where the music figured into the work as more than a passing part of the soundtrack. -- (talk) 13:55, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's Gnossienne No3 and not No1 that is used in Revolver by Guy Ritchie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:11, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

No. 7[edit]

Does anyone know where there is information about the discovery of number 7?

Page move[edit]

Father Goose moved page Gnossiennes (Satie) to Gnossienne over redirect: "no disambiguation necessary, and no plural, per WP:NC".

I can live without the disambiguation. But this is about a group of pieces collectively named Gnossiennes. It is not about the general history, features and form of a "gnossienne" - because there are no history, features or form, because Satie invented the title for a series of pieces. He may not have intended them to be considered as a unified set like the Chopin preludes, but this article is still about all of them as a group rather than about any single one of them. If it were about a single one, that would have to come with a number.
I can't see what part of WP:NC is relevant to this issue. I suggest this be moved to Gnossiennes.-- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 13:26, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
