Volumes 1 and 2 - 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.
Songs: Amor (Amor, Amor, Amor) · Fur (Murray The Furrier) · George · He Tipped The Waiter · Oh Close The Curtain · Over The Piano · Places To Live · Song Of Black Max · Surprise! · The Actor · Toothbrush Time · and Waitin.
