These four fantastic cabaret songs are splendid examples of the genre. They not only provide ample evidence of the composer's and poet's wit and high spirits, but are also wholly characteristic of a particular kind of vernacular music that resulted from the collaboration of two brilliantly endowed young men in the thirties.
Arranged for Piano and voice.

Titles: Tell me the truth about Love * Funeral Blues * Johnny * Calypso.

    These songs go beyond mere singing. The music and text work flawlessly together in a way which both the singer and the audience can connect to. They are a perfect addition to any recital.

    People sometimes think of Britten as tough, but these songs are quite accessible. The range on some of them is quite high, but they are lively, fun, and will add interest to any program you're looking at.
