Having escaped the Nazi takeover of the German government, Kurt Weill found himself in Paris in 1933, trying to get a foothold in a new artistic landscape.  His reputation there was solid, though based mostly on the 1930 French film and stage versions of The Threepenny Opera (L’Opéra de quat’sou), which had been popular. Still, at thirty-four, Kurt Weill was essentially starting over. Luckily, he met cabaret and film star Lys Gauty, who commissioned two songs from him: Complainte de la Seine & Je ne t’aime pas, which he wrote with the famous French lyricist Maurice Magre in 1934.

Originally written for voice and piano, the songs have been arranged for solo trumpet accompanied by four trombones (TTTB), however the solo trumpet part may of course be performed by a vocalist or other instrumentalist.
