Minicabs

(2010)

Minicabs is a six-minute song cycle by William Bolcom comprised of 12 short cabaret songs with lyrics by Arnold Weinstein.


Bolcom's inscription in the score reads:


"Inspired in part by Carrie Jacobs-Bond's Half-Minute Songs (1911), these "minicabs"--mini-cabaret songs--are fashioned from sometimes one-line sketches in Arnold Weinstein's papers, at other times certain phrases that had been successfully kited from show to opera to play without ever previously finding homes."
