Early in 2002 whilst a member of the Studiooper der Universität Bremen
, I was introduced to this jolly Platt song, a for me somewhat surprising work by Arnold Schönberg (1874-1951), by Oliver Rosteck the vocal ensemble leader and it was a great pleasure to sing it publicly in June 2002 during the Schönbergiade 02
and Ceilidh 2002
. The song itself is of love by an arduous aspirant for a "Lütte, Söte, Witte" and his wishes to possess her and his declaration of his intended care for her in the manner that one looks after a diamond.
