Both of the capricci were finished in The two pieces were composed when Ligeti was still studying in Sandor Veress 's class at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music , this is, as a part of his academic exercises. The set has been published by Schott Music together with Ligeti's Invention for piano, which is put in the middle and which the set is strongly associated with. The first capriccio is in a form of a sonatina, with its sections to be played continuously. Widely chromatic and modern, it is a very structured and attractive piece, constructed little motives. It consists of irregular Bulgarian Rhythms with shifting accents all along the capriccio.

Description "Musica Ricercata" of is a collection of 11 piano pieces which even with their traditional character went beyond what was considered appropriate for performance in Hungary in the early s.
The tenth piece, e. The short "Capriccios" and "Invention", written in , reveal convincingly the emergence of Ligeti's musical identity. The conception of these three pieces arose from the inherent technical possibilities afforded by the simultaneous playing of the two pianos. Ligeti works here with processes which develop consequently from an initial core to unfurl in great complexity.

As he was completing work on the original version of the opera Le Grand Macabre in , Ligeti decided to return to writing for the piano for the first time in over a decade. The result was the Three Pieces for Two Pianos, dedicated to the famous avant-garde piano duo Alfons and Aloys Kontarsky, and premiered by them in Cologne on May 15, One important influence on his style that Ligeti explicitly acknowledges in the Three Pieces is minimalism. He first heard the music of Steve Reich and Terry Riley in in California, and immediately recognized similarities between their ideas about musical structure and development and his own, especially in such works as Continuum and Clocks and Clouds He pays tribute to this continuity in the Three Pieces, albeit with a much higher level of dissonance than one normally finds in Reich's or Riley's work.
