Description

This simple and attractive song reveals Reger's simple lyrical gifts, unaffected by the complexities found in his larger works; it was published by Edition Peters in 1909.  Reger's distinctive calligraphy creates a strong impression: the music in black ink, overlaid with all the markings and phrasing added by him in red.  The dedicatee Walter Hinrichsen was born on 23 September 1907, the second son of Henri and Martha Hinrichsen; from 1900 Henri was the sole manager of Peters publishing house (he died at Auschwitz in 1942).  Walter went to the United States in 1936 and established the New York branch of C.F. Peters.
