7 Songs on texts by Joachim Ringelnatz
- Im Park
- Die Schnupftabaksdose
- Arm Kräutchen
- Gedicht in Bi-Sprache
- 3 Kindergebetchen
Duration 17:00 minutes
Seven non-serious songs with style parodies and quotations. They are especially suitable to end a song recital in a merry tone. The songs dont necessarily have to be performed as a cycle; e.g. choose four in reference to Brahms 4 Serious Songs. Or use one of the songs as an encore.
They were written to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of Renate Schmidt and performed on that occasion by her husband Jochen with the composer at the piano.
