Four Bagatelles was commissioned by Arnold Marinissen for performance by himself and Liesbeth Kok. They explore aspects of children's behaviour, as exemplified by the composer's daughter, Annabelle. Much of the thematic ideas are derived from a short 'Annabelle' motif (A-B-E-E), which is heard at the beginning of the work. It was first performed by Arnold and Liesbeth in November, 2003, in the Southern Sinfonia rooms.
