Bagatelles, similarly to “Badineries" or “Capprici" allow composers to express their sens of humor, of parody or derision.
This genre inspires strongly Jean-François Michel as these 3 Bagatelles for clarinet and piano show (as well as his 3 Bagatelles – with totally different musical contents – for flute (BIM FL43), oboe (BIM OB12), bassoon (BIM FG6), bass trombone (BIM TB84) or euphonium and piano (BIM TU175); the series will continue for other instruments]. These pieces request a good musical and technical understanding between performers with free hand for their imagination.

Jean-François Michel has developed a creativ and versatile repertoire for his numerous and talented students. Nevertheless, the evident quality of these musical works can successfully enrich recital concert programs outside pedagogical institutions.(jpm).
