Today the bagatelle may refer to an erotic interlude, as well as a lively, light and ephemeral artistic composition – a lightness certainly not devoid of depth, as proved by Mozart’s Quintet for clarinet and string quartet K.581. What is indisputable is that, ever since Beethoven and even before, the genre stopped adhering to any rules: which makes it an ideal playground for contemporary composers who see it as an opportunity for true evasion.
