Detail

Description

The three
bagatelles for piano were written during the summer of 1999 for the
pianist Robert Hamilton. Each piece, as the titles suggest, is a short
character study. Each also experiments with different compositional
techniques based on the same basic materials:. the seven-note
collection of pitches found in the major scale and a long-short-long
rhythmic motive. The challenge was to create three pieces that on the
surface are strikingly different, but nonetheless relate deeply to one
another.
A note to the performer: The bagatelles may be performed singly, as a
group, or any two together. However, the original order noted above
should be preserved when performing the entire group.
