I think a memorized instrumental piece of any complexity needs to be played at least once per week, maybe twice per week, to keep from forgetting it over time.

It's not a question of "losing it," it's about having immediate access to the information you need in your brain. If you let too much time go by without playing the piece, you just lose quick access to it.

At least that's what I have found with my particular brain.
