Anthony de Mare "Liaisons: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano"
"To hear composers take my work and take it seriously ... it's a thrill." – Stephen Sondheim

US 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!

"Each of the composers is having a conversation with Mr. Sondheim," Anthony de Mare told the New York Times, "with his material but also his influence, his musical wit and his craft."
