Liaisons: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano

OPENING / CLOSING DATES
Closed

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Concert pianist Anthony de Mare pays tribute to Stephen Sondheim in a fascinating project. De Mare invited composers from a broad variety of genres – from Sondheim's own world of musical theater to jazz, classical, pop, film and beyond – to "re-imagine" a Sondheim song of their choice as a solo piano piece. Contributing re-composers included Steve Reich, Wynton Marsalis, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Fred Hersch, Ethan Iverson, William Bolcom, Duncan Sheik, Nico Muhly, Eve Beglarian, Gabriel Kahane, Thomas Newman, Jake Heggie, and more - in total, 36 composers, ranging in age from 30 – 75 and representing seven countries and 29 Grammy, Pulitzer, Tony, Academy and Emmy Awards!
