This sequence was first designed as a second volume of the Caprices (2017) but remained incomplete until it was expanded into a different composition a year later (vol.1 of Pièces de Fantaisie), but the number 1 piece felt better suited as a starting point for a set of variations.
The next few pieces (2-3 & 4) were retained and the others were added so that the alternative title became an obvious choice for a third and last title, the current one.
