"Plaisir d'amour" - this beautiful love song arranged for string quartet. Perfect music to be played at weddings and special occasions. "Plaisir d'amour (literally "The pleasure of love") is a classical French love song written in 1784 by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini (1741–1816). it took its text from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755–1794), which appears in his novel Célestine.The pleasure of love lasts only a momentThe grief of love lasts a lifetime.I gave up everything for ungrateful Sylvia,She is leaving me for another lover.The pleasure of love lasts only a moment,The grief of love lasts a lifetime."As long as this water will run gentlyTowards this brook which borders the meadow,I will love you", Sylvia told me repeatedly.The water still runs, but she has changed.The pleasure of love lasts only a moment,The grief of love lasts a lifetime.
