Commissioned by Marc Reese
Marc Reese commissioned me to arrange and compose several works for a recording project, including a new piece entitled Sound and Fury, (though I like to call it “Reeseʼs Piece”.) After completing this task, I felt there needed to be another piece, a short recital opener or encore. The Bagatelle is just that. It is brief, brisk and to the point, meant to highlight Marcʼs ease at getting around the instrument. The piece ends almost before it starts, with a harmonic question mark intended to surprise all who are listening.
