Program note: Réminiscence plays on the idea of fragmented memory and recollection. The material of the piece is fully revealed at its beginning. After this initial instance, the trio will try to reconstruct the entirety of the material. But the memory of this idea will gradually fade away. In place of the first coherent idea the trio will instead work through several alterations of it in a reconstructive process.
