About this CD:

The songs, whether happy or sad, come straight from the heart. You will be moved by the feelings they convey.

Nur nicht aus Liebe weinen:

Text by Fritz Beckman and music by Theo Mackeben both composer and librettist are German and the song was originally created by the Swede, Zara Leander. I love its Russian gypsy temperament and devil may care attitude of an obviously deeply hurt woman To hell with him, Ill show him the song conveys.


My mother, Rosl Berndt, created this song by Walter Jurmann. The beautiful lyrics were by Fritz Rotter, a good friend of hers. When sooner or later your love leaves you, your mother will always be there for you. Sadly mine no longer is so I dedicate this song to her.


This song is the result of co-operation by another world famous team; the dramatist Brecht and the composer Kurt Weill. Both had left Nazi Germany in the 30s and their partnership resulted in famous works such as The Threepenny Opera. Kanonenjenny and Surabaya Johnny are further examples of their art.

Schön ist so ein Ringelspiel:

This is a light hearted Viennese song, the creation of two of mothers good friends, Hermann Leopoldi and the librettist and poet, Peter Herz, who had live opposite us in Vienna. To the background music of the merry go round in the Vienna Prater (fairground) a husband and his floozy, to their consternation, spot his wife with his lodger.
