Anthony de Mare, piano

Anthony de Mare invited 36 of the world’s foremost contemporary composers to choose a song by Stephen Sondheim and reimagine it as a solo piano piece. Both an homage and a celebration, Liaisons makes the case for Sondheim as one of the 20th century's most influential composers.
