Duncan Sheik Talks LIAISONS: RE-IMAGINING SONDHEIM FROM THE PIANO
A new crowd-sourcing Indiegogo campaign has been established in support of the piano-based Stephen Sondheim dedication project titled LIAISONS: RE-IMAGINING SONDHEIM FROM THE PIANO and Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik discusses his participation in the project as part of a new social media post.
Sheik utilized his Facebook account earlier this week to share, "Contribute to The Liaison's Project, a collection of composers who've re-imagined Sondheim's works. My contribution is "Johanna...in Space". Find more about the project at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/liaisons-re-imagining-sondheim-from-the-piano--2
The official description of LIAISONS: RE-IMAGINING SONDHEIM FROM THE PIANO is as follows: "Liaisons is a landmark commissioning and concert project, conceived by acclaimed concert pianist Anthony de Mare, based on the songs of legendary musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim. At its essence, Liaisons is an homage. But unlike tributes to his show tunes, which have featured some of the world's greatest singers, Liaisons' focus is on Sondheim the composer - featuring some of the world's foremost composers in classical, jazz, pop, theater and film music. We began commissioning composers in 2009, and in 2011 had received enough pieces to start touring them in concert. Tony has performed the pieces in various combinations to sold-out houses and rave reviews at Symphony Space, the Ravinia and Gilmore Festivals and other major venues in NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Diego and Portland (to name a few). As of this writing we finally have all 36 pieces in hand. Until now, no one has ever heard the music outside of a live performance... and no one has ever heard all the pieces together. But with your help, we can change that!"
