This little composition was written as a friendly parody of a romantic duet. It is mainly in mock-Mendelssohn style, though Bach, Mozart and Schumann make their presence felt as well. The text is a slightly naughty rococo poem by Chr.F.Weiße.
The occasion for composing this song was a course in German literature with professor Deen Larsen in Austria. His pleasure in explaining the double meaning of the text was so obvious that an appropriate musical equivalent had to be provided.
It would be suitable as an intermezzo or encore.
