||Julian Raoul Besset
||A work rediscovered while sorting through my music library for scanning purposes. At first, I wondered who composed it, then it dawned upon me : it must have been me, despite the stylistic discrepancies. I there and then decided to expand it, opening two apertures, one upon my earlyhood, the other upon my hoaryhood.

This page was meant to be a receptacle for abandoned or early pieces that the composer felt worthy of reconsideration. However the original design is not strictly adhered to. Lack of discipline probably.
The first piece has been considerably altered, its former simple, even rudimentary, design, is quite often and unexpectedly twisted out of shape. The second is a prelude no.2, whose companion piece was deemed unworthy of a fresh consideration, hence the pun in the title. The third is a stop and go affair, at least initially, while the last has a Spanish flavor and is actually an improvisation that the composer decided to transcribe, but gave up upon in the middle of his task, which he found to be so overwhelmingly boring that he decided to conclude the piece compositionally.
