The "Bagatelles" are startlingly like Ravel in mood and texture but sterner stuff is in store as melody leaves and rhythm, texture and aphoristic motives characterize the "Epigrams", "Sequences" and "Impressioni" (a tense, mysterious atmosphere entering the works employing strings too) while elements of violence are added to the "Elegy" (for victims in the Balkans during the late 90s).
