The atmospheric cycle Avant-dernières pensées of 1915, with its underlaid words, likewise belongs to Satie's story pieces. The curious performance instructions in these three miniatures, all based on ostinato figures, amusingly lampoon the ideal of Romantic expressiveness.

The pieces range from an easy to moderate level of difficulty and provide an ideal additional varied repertoire for teaching purposes.
