Bjørn Kruse (NO) about his piano piece „Erinnerung“:

[A reflection on Beethoven’s String Quartet no. 15 in A minor, Op. 132, beginning of 3rd movement.]

„In 1988 I was commissioned to write music for the play, „Autumn and Winter“, by Lars Norén, playing at Det Norske Teater here in Oslo. I used the haunting 3rd movement of Beethovens 15th string quartet as the basis for an electronically manipulated sound „environment“. The underlying mood was much of what I imagine Beethoven experienced in 1825 of his own mortality. The movement has been a part of me since. „Erinnerung“ is a reminiscence of fragments that linger forever, it seems. Thanks for affording me the opportunity to delve on this material!“
