Acclaimed pianist Anthony de Mare came up with this cool concert and commission project, inviting 36 of the most acclaimed contemporary composers to create a solo instrumental piece based on a favorite song from legendary Broadway composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim. An international group of talents, whose backgrounds range from classical and opera to pop, jazz, musical theater and film, responded to the challenge, and the result is Liaisons, an opportunity to experience the creative re-imaginings of favorites like "Into the Woods," "Being Alive," "Send in the Clowns" and more from famed talents like Wynton Marsalis, Gabriel Kahane, Duncan Sheik and many others -- all played live by de Mare. The project's won raves from The New York Times, which credits de Mare with having "transformed the recital format." The international group of composers range in age from 30 to 75, and have 29 Grammy, Pulitzer, Tony, Academy and Emmy Awards between them. Learn More
