So you think you know your Sondheim? You will have second thoughts when you listen to pianist Anthony de Mare, a champion of contemporary music with a passion for Sondheim and a brilliant idea: why not ask 36 of today’s leading composers to “re-imagine” their favorite Sondheim songs as solo piano works? Contributors range from Wynton Marsalis, Duncan Sheik, Ethan Iverson, and Steve Reich to Nico Muhly, Fred Hersch, Paul Moravec—and even Sondheim himself.
