Bagatelles, Op 59
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The next-to-last of Kapustin’s ten Bagatelles, Op 59 (1991) starts with an ascerbic, slightly dissonant eight-bar introduction that gives way to a sunny tune that wouldn’t be out of place in a Brazilian chorino. Notice how the undulating left hand provides a bass function as well as melodic counterlines, rendering a rhythm section superfluous.
