'Symphonieen der Nederlanden' is a piece in one movement for wind band. It contains seven subdivisions, each of them treating a different musical theme. But the unifying idea is hard work, the same kind of hard work as dragging a plough through the flat Dutch polder fields. Heavy work, and always the same. Sometimes a bit of relaxation, like the charleston at the end, but we keep our clogs on. It's a serious piece.
