Musicians have been singing and performing Stephen Sondheim's songs for decades, and probably other composers have been jealously thinking, “I wish I could write those songs.” Well now they can, thanks to pianist Anthony de Mare. De Mare's Liaisons project offers some of today’s finest jazz, classical, and musical theater composers a chance to reimagine a favorite Sondheim song.
Hear Anthony de Mare perform a few selections from the project in the Soundcheck studio.
- "Color and Light" (arranged by Nico Muhly)
- "Send in the Clowns" (arranged by Ethan Iverson)
- "Finishing the Hat" (arranged by Steve Reich)
Anthony de Mare plays at The Cell on May 12 at 3PM.
