This is a collection of 12 songs primarily for the classical singer to perform in recital with piano accompaniment. The songs are in a medium voice range, and could probably be performed by any voice type (soprano, mezzo-soprano, etc.), although mezzo-sopranos will find them most suitable. The music has quite a theatrical flair, although it is in a contemporary classical style. Distinctive repertoire with a twist. Arnold Weinstein's texts are as pithy as Bolcom's settings of them.

    pieces in here are written for mezzo-soprano, there are quite a few that can suit other voice types.

  • March 17, 2008 Fun songs to add life to your recital

    If you feel people will treat your recital as uninteresting because your music is all 19th c. or earlier, and inaccessible because it's in French, German, or Italian, then these songs might be what you're looking for. American, fun, interesting, contemporary, relevant, and totally unlike anything else that...
