Liaisons: Re-imagining Sondheim from the Piano

Pianist Anthony de Mare returns with more selections from his Liaisons project, in which he commissioned 36 composers—ranging from William Bolcom to Nico Muhly to Mark-Anthony Turnage—to arrange the immortal music of Stephen Sondheim for piano. The San Francisco Chronicle called the project “a revelation” and de Mare’s playing “a combination of lyrical reflection and extroverted pyrotechnics.”
