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

Russian virtuoso pianist Denis Matsuev returns to the United States as part of a massive worldwide tour through Europe, Asia, Israel and beyond. The pianist received critical acclaim for his sold-out Carnegie Hall recital in early 2010 — an evening about which The New York Times noted, “he superbly offered a primal performance … [the] atmosphere was electric.” Known for his breathtaking virtuosity and clear artistic identity, Matsuev is one of the most sought-after pianists on the international concert stage and has performed with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berliner Philharmoniker with Valery Gergiev, The London Symphony Orchestra with Semyon Bychkov and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Leonard Slatkin. For his appearance at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Matsuev will perform a program of works by Schubert, Beethoven, Grieg and Stravinsky.
