Most people are unaware of the fact that Johannes Josephus Viotta is the composer of many famous Dutch children's songs. Even less people know that Viotta wrote a beautiful symphony and overture in 1833, during his studies in Leiden. Impressed by this early Dutch romantic work, Van Gasteren arranged for a beautiful publication of both works.
