Customer Reviews

On my third listen...

I was intrigued when I heard about this project last year but admittedly skeptical as I am a Sondheim purist and was worried about a lot of grandstanding or gratuitous alteration of the melodies. But this exceeded my expectations - it is amazing to hear Sondheim through the ears of such a wildly diverse bunch of composers. These pieces are actually making me hear new things in Sondheim's music, which I knew pretty well. Steve Reich's Finishing the Hat is just amazing, Ethan Iverson's Send in the Clowns is mind-bending and wonderful... but the one I was most worried about, The Ladies Who Lunch, is absolutely awesome and maybe my fave. He got it all in there somehow - the essence of the song, the story, the character, even Elaine Stritch's iconic performance - I swear, buy this for just that track! It is also nothing short of astonishing that a single pianist can play this enormous a range of genres and styles. There's incredible virtuosity here. Multiple thumbs up and bravo to Anthony de Mare and ECM for this incredible collection!

When is the songbook going to be released?

Seriously. These are brilliant. I want to play them all. Where’s the accompanying songbook? It would make a killing.

Liaisons-Re-Imagiing Sondheim from the Piano

I heard about this on the Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast. Beautifully done. I love his rendition of Johanna from Sweeney Todd.
