a rare instance of a "serious" (unpublished) composition for piano solo in K.K.'s production, in the manner of Scriabin. The manuscript is clearly marked in pencil, but is obviously a "suspended" composition, in the sense that, had the composer's life not been cut so short, he would certainly have taken up this composition where he left off, as certain markings seem to indicate some hesitations on the part of the composer regarding the measure ordering. Accordingly two versions are proposed.
