“Five Little Pieces” began with the composition of the Bagatelle as a present for pianist and friend, John Jensen, upon his 60th birthday in 2004.

Each movement presents a different texture and technique: as such, bagatelle, solfeggio, invention, lyric, and fugue. I think of them as entertainments for both the performer and the listener.
