Work comment

This is a work that was started in 2016 with a few measures then stop. I had some correspondens with Stefan during this time it's comming.

 Then I was in the FST appartment in Berlin 2016 and suddenly one evening when looking at the opening it clicked and during a few days in Berlin alone I finished the Elegy and send it off to Stefan. After this I realised that it need some companions so during the next year I added three more solo piece to complete a suite.
