Rememoror for piano
Rememoror (lat. "I remember") was composed during the time I was writing a memoir of my dear relative, who is suffering from dementia. The damage of memory hit me hard and I let a repeating, simple memory and its many runners, shatters and passes become a starting point of this work.
Rememoror was commissioned by Ville Hautakangas and was composed with the help of Finnish Cultural Foundation Pirkanmaa, The work is dedicated to my grandmother and to Ville Hautakangas.
