Memorabalia is a suite comprised of 12 movements for piano solo, with optional assistants. Four of the movements are theatrical. In one movement, a narrator selects a poem (in the language of the audience) not longer than 8 - 10 lines; He/she does not inform the pianist of the poem ahead of time. Read a fascinating note from the composer here about the creation and inspiration of this piece.
