Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano with Anthony de Mare

Anthony de Mare is one of the world’s foremost champions of contemporary music, praised by The New York Times for his “muscularly virtuosic, remarkably uninhibited performance [and] impressive talents.” His versatility as a pianist has inspired the creation of over 60 new works by some of today’s most distinguished artists.

Liaisons: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano is a landmark project that perfectly expresses his vision to expand both the repertoire and the audience for contemporary music. As its creator, performer, and co-producer, he has brought together many of today’s most highly regarded emerging and established composers, spanning the classical, contemporary, jazz, film, theater, and indie worlds, to bring the work of Stephen Sondheim into the concert hall. All three New York premiere concerts of The Liaisons Project at Symphony Space were greeted by sold-out houses and raves in The New York Times.

Most recently, Mr. de Mare has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered* and was invited to perform at Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series event, Reich and Sondheim: In Conversation, earlier this year. He has nearly 20 recordings in his discography, and currently serves as Professor of Piano at Manhattan School of Music and New York University.
