From the composer:

Three friends, of an evening, having perhaps imbibed and eaten well, alight upon the fond and facetious remembrance of friends long past and luminaries well met.  Amid their tales of glory and ignomy are peppered representations, now laughingly, now lovingly rendered, of those distinguishing characteristics making friend or luminary most revered.  Our trio, being specimens all of the humble viola, their varied acquaintances run to the musical, and, in five short pieces, bestow the heights of respect in violistic imitation.

In short, they do impressions.
