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. Bossa ostinata is based on a four-bar rhythmic pattern, and elaborated as a theme and variations in a latin jazz feel.
