Mein Kind, wir waren Kinder, zwei Kinder klein und froh…


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.
