Variations on Deep Throat La Cumparsita Een verfcassette

"Een verfcassette"

    "Een verfcassette / A Paintbox" was written as a nice little joke. For a childrenīs composition contest the composer took a roll of wallpaper, wrote gigantic stafflines on it and only wrote down a 3/4-bassline for tuba (the first 4 notes of J.Straussīs "An der Schönen Blauen Donau").

    The remaining stafflines were filled in by his young children (1 year old Maria & and 3 year old Mario who also was responsible for the title) with paint, ink, and large felt-tip pen.

    On the childrenīs new yearsconcert of 1994 "Een verfcassette / A Paintbox" was performed by the "Nederlands Blazers Ensemble / NBE"
