In music, a reprise (/rəˈprz/)[1] is the repetition or reiteration of the opening material later in a composition as occurs in the recapitulation of sonata form, though—originally in the 18th century—was simply any repeated section, such as is indicated by beginning and ending repeat signs.[2]

A partial or abbreviated reprise is known as a petite reprise (/pəˈtt rəˈprz/). In Baroque music this usually occurs at the very end of a piece, repeating the final phrase with added ornamentation.
