1. Memories

The first piece is in ABA formPart A is a dreamy " Andante "  in which the expressive , lyrical violin is accompanied by chords or harp -like  arpeggios on the piano. In part B the two performers converse , - changes of speed and time- signature ( Vivo ) lead to a fast dance -like episode, inspired by  the style , tonality and  rhythms of Romanian folklore.The melodious Part A returns bringing  the” memories” to an end before they  fade quietly away .

2. Intermezzo (Blues)

Brings his jazzy sounds cheerful and gives the player / receiver from the "lost memories".
It's a blues, in which the two artists - perform a rhythmic, but also very transparent dialogue - as in a conventional jazz improvisation. The joy of making music together, to listen to each other and to the imagination while giving free rein should be in every case in the foreground.
Those who wish can improvise on.

3. Farewell Dance

The suite ends with a waltz that brings good memories to dance. The piano part has a typical waltz accompaniment, also the solist with full vigor, "animato", plays a very beautiful melody. Both performers 'dance' / play a cheerful, noisy waltz in which their feelings are to be played out freely. The whole world belongs to this moment only to them. "Mention" at the end, before the parting comes, the two dialog some nice moments from the past.
It is a friendly farewell, so the end of the piece, sounds dominate in f, mf and animato. Thus we return to an enlightened, peaceful atmosphere back into the real world.
