Baritone Stephen Powell’s debut CD

Baritone Stephen Powell is recording his debut CD for the Acis Productions label, run by Geoffrey Silver. The CD will feature 4 contemporary composers who will all play their own works: William Bolcom, John Musto, Ricky Ian Gordon and myself.

After practicing for six months, I feel ready! My portion of the recording includes the following:

If I… — the last of my Four Dickinson Songs, arranged for baritone, clarinet and piano, with Charles Neidich on clarinet.

Men with Small Heads — my humorous cycle that sets the poetry of Thomas Lux.

Money — a Dana Gioia setting


The Wind Sighs — the premiere recording of David Mason’s beautiful aria for the Poet from our opera-in-progress, Ludlow

Looking forward to the release!
