Description Three short 12-note pieces for recorder and piano: tenor, descant, bass, respectively. They form a whole, but can be played separately.

Ricordanze means “recollections”; the piece is full of tiny motifs that continually reappear in different contexts as if involuntarily and imperfectly recalled. But the title also plays on the name “Recorder”; and, though scholars dispute whether the recorder is named from the verb “To record”, meaning “To sing like a bird”, or whether, rather, the verb derives from the name of the instrument, certain of the piece’s motifs may be thought to have a bird-like character.
