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
We often enjoy a light dinner at Fonte Cafe and Wine Bar before shows at Benaroya. Much nicer than the choices in the hall.Seattle Men's Chorus Holiday Concert: Play It Again Santa dining • Jun 17 2014 star this tip starred

The Musically Speaking series is a great way to understand the background of both popular, and lesser known, classical music pieces. Each of the two pieces was prefaced with a casual yet informative commentary from the conductor's podium, complete with snippets of the performance (from the full orchestra, live) that illustrated the conductor's musical points. And the performances themselves -- especially the Schumann -- were spectacular.
While the matinee time seems to appeal to a predominantly older audience, the Seattle Symphony's Musically Speaking performances would be appropriate to classical music lovers of any age.
