Eisler composed this song in Berlin early in 1932, perhaps for the phonograph recording with Ernst Busch, a congenial interpreter of Eisler's works. Since there is no record of a concert performance to date, the Munich Philharmonic's Eisler concert on 5 April 2000 will eventually be the posthumous world premiere of this version.
