Pianist Anthony de Mare to Celebrate Sondheim in LIAISONS: RE-IMAGINING SONDHEIM FROM THE PIANO, 3/29-30

After performing nationwide in 2012-13 throughout the U.S. and Canada, LIAISONS: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano featuring internationally renowned contemporary pianist Anthony de Mare comes to the Mondavi Center for two nights only March 29 (8:00om) and 30 (2:00pm). Based on the music of the legendary composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim, LIAISONS is an intrepid program of new, solo piano works by some of the world's foremost contemporary composers - this marks the first time that Sondheim songs have ever been re-imagined for solo piano. Commissioned purely for this landmark project, composers from the realms of classical, jazz, film, pop, musical theater, opera and avant-garde music have come together to pay homage to Sondheim, whose music has dominated American musical theater for the past four decades. LIAISONS' 2012-13 nationwide tour has made stops in San Francisco, New York City, Fort Worth, and Hudson Opera House, to name a few, and will continue throughout 2014. A full recording of the project is also underway, produced by Judith Sherman, for release in 2015. Tickets are $19-$42. To purchase, contact Mondavi Arts at 530-754-2787 or visit mondaviarts.org.

de Mare's program is as follows:

MAR 29 - William Bolcom - A Little Night Fughetta (based on Anyone Can Whistle and Send in the Clowns) / Ricky Ian Gordon - Every Day A Little Death / Nico Muhly - Color and Light / Mark-Anthony Turnage - Pretty Women / Paul Moravec - I Think About You (based on Losing My Mind) / Steve Reich - Finishing the Hat - Two Pianos / David Shire - Love Is In the Air / Jason Robert Brown - Birds of Victorian England (based on Green Finch and Linnet Bird) / Ethan Iverson - Send in the Clowns / Fred Hersch - No One is Alone / Gabriel Kahane - Being Alive / Jake Heggie - I'm Excited. No, You're Not. (based on A Weekend in the Country)
