Andrew Kennedy (tenor)

Aaron Copland: 6 songs by Emily Dickinson
Nature, the gentlest mother
The world feels dusty
Sleep is supposed to be
When they come back
I felt a funeral in my brain
The chariot

Erich Korngold:Five songs (op 38)

Benjamin Britten
Fish in the unruffled lakes
To lie flat on the back
Night covers up the rigid land
The sun shines down
What's in your mind
Underneath the abject willow

Sergei Rachmaninov
Oh never sing to me again (op 4, no 4)
Believe it not (op 14, no 7)
The answer (op 21, no 4)
Spring waters (op 14, no 11)

Igor StravinskyThe owl and the pussy cat

Leonard Bernstein La bonne cuisine.
