These variations on a popular Dutch children's song about a 'Count from The Hague' are infact studies in orchestral playing. Aspects dealing with playing in tune; overall sound; ensemble playing; rhythm; articulation and dynamics are paid attention to. The scoring is strictly limited to four-part-harmony, which makes this work suitable for incomplete orchestras or other windgroups and youth orchestras. When performing with a full band it is recommended to vary the scoring according to the character of each respective variation. In this way the conductor can have a creative share in the overall performance of this music.
