Pianist Anthony de Mare Celebrates Stephen Sondheim in LIAISONS: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano

Tickets: $45 General, $15 Under 30
After nearly a year of previews throughout the U.S. and Canada, LIAISONS: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano featuring internationally renowned contemporary pianist Anthony de Mare comes to New York City’s Symphony Space for one night only (4/21). Based on the music of the legendary composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim, LIAISONS is an intrepid program of 17 new, solo piano works by 17 of the world’s foremost contemporary composers - this marks the first time that Sondheim songs have ever been re-imagined for solo piano. The evening will also include an intimate, on-stage discussion with Stephen Sondheim led by Mark Eden Horowitz, the critically acclaimed author of Sondheim on Music, as well as brief composer panels moderated by Symphony Space’s Artistic Director Laura Kaminsky.
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 demonstrates just how universal and timeless Sondheim’s music truly is,” explains de Mare. “The program’s collection of composers, ranging from jazz pianist Fred Hersch and Academy- and Grammy- award-winning composer David Shire to post-classical mavericks Steve Reich and Mason Bates and opera composer Jake Heggie, reveals Sondheim’s amazing influence and ability to transcend the traditional boundaries of musical theater.”

Melodia Women's Choir presents COLORS OF THE SUN

Tickets: $20/advance, $25/door ($15/advance students and seniors)
Performers include Melodia Women’s Choir, Cynthia Powell, Artistic Director; Taisiya Pushkar (piano); Nathalie Joachim (flute/piccolo); and Stephanie Griffin (viola).

Melodia Women's Choir of New York City, conducted by Artistic Director Cynthia Powell, concludes its ninth season of bringing rarely heard music for women’s voices to choral audiences with “Colors of the Sun,” a spirited concert bursting with the joy and vitality of summer days and featuring Many-Colored Brooms, a work by Johannes Somary (1925-2011). This rarely heard, evocative composition for women’s voices, flute/piccolo, viola, and piano takes its name from the opening line of Emily Dickinson’s poem “She sweeps with many-colored Brooms,” and is inspired by the powerful imagery, feminist spirit, and playful tone of Dickinson’s work.

Also featuring the poetry of Emily Dickinson is It sounded as if the Streets were running, a composition by the contemporary British choral and opera composer Jonathan Dove that captures the swelling energy of a summer storm. Additional program works include O Virtus Sapientiae, a radiant and meditative piece by Seattle-based conductor and composer Karen P. Thomas on a text by Hildegard von Bingen, the soaring Magnificat by R. Vaughan Williams, the beautiful Six Songs for Female Chorus by Sergei Rachmaninoff, and beginning and ending compositions, from the celebrated and prolific Estonian composer Veljo Tormis, Suveöö (Summer Night) and Lauliku lapsepoli (The Songster’s Childhood).
