Programme Note
Peter Lieberson Bagatelles (1985)
Composer Note:
Bagatelles was commissioned by the late Andrew Wolf and premiered by Peter Serkin at a benefit concert for the All-Newton Music School in November 1985. I feel grateful that I met and worked with Andy Wolf. Although my contact with him was limited to a few conversations, the meaning of this wonderful man remains very much with me. Bagatelles is dedicated to him and to Peter Serkin.

There are three bagatelles in all: Proclamation; Spontaneous Songs, a group of short character pieces; and finally, The Dance, a slightly more than three-minute waltz.

— Peter Lieberson

Peter Serkin is the composer's perfect pianist. With his genius, Serkin gives a fine-spun, silvery clarity [to] this collection of short pieces he commissioned from his friends. Some of the loveliest [pieces] are Peter Lieberson's extemporaneous-sounding but meticulously crafted Bagatelles and Fantasy Pieces.
