by Kurt Weill
is a set of three French songs for Voice and Piano. The lyrics have been written by Maurice Magre
and Roger Fernay
and the general level of difficulty is medium.
The first piece, Complainte de la Seine
(Complains of the Seine), is three page long and its lyrics are about what lies at the bottom of the river.
The second song, Je ne t’aime pas
(I don’t love you), is a man telling someone that he doesn’t love her, that everything is fine and that he is fine if she is happy.
The third piece, Youkali
is a highly rhythmic tango-habanera in four pages, which depicts the island of Youkali. Kurt Weill
(1900-1950) is a German composer who developed operas and some works for the concert hall.
