In the course of its fifty years of existence (from 1965 to 2015), the Belfius Classics competition has changed its name several times. However, its primary objective has always been to reward the best young artists in different categories. In 2004, under the name of Axion Classics, it welcomed Céline Virgils, a young and talented harpsichordist for whom I was asked to write this imposed work, freely inspired by the blues scale.
