Liaisons is a landmark project, conceived by acclaimed concert pianist Anthony de Mare, who commissioned 36 of the world's foremost contemporary composers from across the musical spectrum to "re-imagine" one of Sondheim's songs as a solo piano piece. The result is new repertory that reveals Sondheim's influence across multiple genres and generations. Chosen in consultation with Sondheim, the Liaisons roster spans the classical, jazz, opera, pop, musical theatre, and film worlds. Composers hail from seven countries, range in age from 30 to 75, and represent more than 44 Pulitzers, Grammys, Tonys, and Academy Awards. At its essence, Liaisons is an homage, focused on Sondheim, the composer. Liaisons leaves no doubt that Sondheim's music is as at home in the concert hall as it is in the theatre—making the case for him as one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential composers.
