Two Songs on Texts of Edna St. Vincent Millay
I. Time Does Not Bring Relief
July 19, 2002
Bowdoin Summer Music Festival
Amy Burton (soprano), J.J. Penna (piano)
July 21, 2002: Michael Cohen set the two Millay songs specifically for the Bowdoin Summer Music Festival. They are masterful, and were perfectly rendered by soprano
Amy Burton and pianist J.J. Penna.
There was a strange atmosphere in the crowded theater after the last note,
as if people wanted to jump up and cheer.
