(by the composer herself)

“Bagatelle” was composed on a commission by Nicolas Horvath for “Glass Worlds-Hommages to Philip Glass” concert series with a concept of minimalism. With the composers standpoint of minimalism in a more traditional way, Sakar’s mono-tematic attitude for minimalism has shaped with “Bagatelle” which forms around one characteristic and simple theme variating and cycling around the piece with a traditional use of piano. Composer had aimed listeners, not to be able to follow or anticipate the course, 
but to have just fun in a trice.
