Although the ricercata or ricercar is an established contrapuntal style and the final movement of the work is in that form , Ligeti's title should probably be interpreted literally as "researched music" or "sought music". This work captures the essence of Ligeti's search to construct his own compositional style ex nihilo , [3] and as such presages many of the more radical directions Ligeti would take in the future.

With the exception of the second and fifth bagatelles, these are quick, spirited little pieces.

The bagatelles are often texturally sparse, with most of the notes either played staccato or strongly accented to create cool but insistent music.
