Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Stephen Sondheim
To hear composers take my work and take it seriously ... it's a thrill.

New York Times, 11th December 2015
For this ambitious project, the pianist Mr. de Mare, a contemporary music champion and Stephen Sondheim fan, commissioned composers from all camps of new music - Steve Reich, Wynton Marsalis and Tania Leon among them - to write solo-piano pieces inspired by favorite Sondheim songs.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
All of the music holds interest, although some selections succeed more than others. The pieces generally fare best when composers remain true to their own stylistic selves and stay focused... [a] fascinating, excellently produced collection.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
You can't always tell in advance where the jewels will lie... but the duds never seriously compromise the joy and diversity of De Mare's enterprise and artistry, or the haunting power of Sondheim's original songs, reflected in 37 crazy mirrors.
