Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Variations in C major "Ah, vous dirai-je, maman!"

During his stay in Paris, Mozart composed four series of variations, including these Twelve Variations on the theme “Ah!, vous dirai-je, mamam!”. Based on a very popular children’s song, they were published in Vienna in 1785 and their popularity spread rapidly. Mozart exploits a simple theme very imaginatively, giving the work an almost dramaturgical nature.
