Suite Memoirs features James Behr performing 11 original piano works. Here is the story behind each in his words.

1. COMING HOME, dedicated to soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, reflects the yearning to go home after being away so long.
2. GOOD TIMES recalls college days and time spent with friends.
3. ANTICIPATION reflects the bubbly excitement of performing concerts.
4. WHIMSICAL DREAMER depicts intense student life at Juilliard, portraying my friends and me: artistic, playful, mischievous.
5. FUTURE HOPE depicts the initial years after college, getting started in life.
6. RAGS (also a song in my musical “Dreamquest”) conveys the thrill of performing and my adoration of ragtime music.
7-8. The next two works address romance: FLIRTS-REPLY (wooing & coquettish responses) and sensuous ENCHANTED.
9. ELEGY FOR TOWERS FALLEN, written days after 9/11, expresses the profound sadness of victimized families.
10. ALONE melodiously recalls moments of loss and loneliness.
11. RESOLVE, the finale, reflects upon years of struggle and hopes to achieve lifelong dreams.
