Walter y Anjelica Huston - September Song




Ya hemos tenido aquí a Lotte Lenya, Sarah Vaughan, Lou Reed, Art Tatum y al Kurt Weill Duo interpretando esta bella y melancólica canción compuesta por Kurt Weill y Maxwell Anderson.

Hoy vienen Walter Huston y su nieta, Anjelica. Vamos a escuchar a ambos...


"This is the longer version of September Song. The singer is Walter Huston who was somewhat limited in range but for whom composer Kurt Weill and lyricist Maxwell Anderson wrote this specially. The song originally appeared in the Broadway show 'Knickerbocker Holiday' in 1938. According to the sleeve notes of 'Mack The Knife - Songs of Kurt Weill' this version was recorded in 1938 and 1944. For me it's the definitive"


SEPTEMBER SONG

Oh, it's a long, long while
from May to December,
but the days grow short
when you reach September.

When the autumn weather
turns the leaves to flame,
one hasn't got time
for the waiting game.

Oh the days dwindle down
to a precious few,
September,
November.

And these few precious days
I'll spend with you.
These precious days
I'll spend with you.






"Anjelica Huston sings 'September Song' made famous by her grandfather, Walter Huston. Arrangement and Orchestrations by Marc Shaiman"
