"Autrefois" (In Olden Days) is a perfect title for this piece in more ways than one, for it has its own checkered past. It is based on sketches that date back as far as 1997, as a "valse lente" in D major for the left hand alone. The student for whom it was written didn't like the piece and never played it, so I was left with a draft of what I thought was a strong work. I decided to recast it for two hands and transpose it into D flat major. At some point the title was changed, and the time signature was changed to 6/8 from the original 3/4. It has occupied my time off and on for several years, until I felt that I got the keyboard writing to my satisfaction. .
