Song for (mezzo)soprano, baritone and piano
Two-part version of a one-part original
Text: Heinrich (Harry) Heine
This is a song written in a style that I associate with J. Reichardt, ‘Goethe’s composer’. I have therefore taken the liberty to use his name as an alias, even though he certainly never knew Heinrich Heine, let alone Kurt Weill.
Neither did I, by the way.
