Sondheim Tonight (2CD)


Sondheim Tonight (2CD) - $32.99* No Longer Available, sorry


The Barbican Centre paid a tribute to the world's greatest living musical composer, STEPHEN SONDHEIM, last year with a concert entitled SONDHEIM TONIGHT.

The star studded evening was a sell out event and generated such excitement that this "live" recording is eagerly awaited.

The stars appearing included:-

Some of the greatest Sondheim songs were represented in the concert and therefore will be included on this 2CD set. And because of the World premiere recordings of two Sondheim pieces, A VERY SHORT VIOLIN PIECE and A PIANO SONATA, this 2CD set is a must for all Sondheim collectors the World over.

Although this is a "live" recording, all the details in the 65 piece orchestra and the voices are perfectly recorded in Digital Dolby Surround Sound.

The evening and this 2CD set are to benefit The Alan Jay Lerner Cancer Research Fund.
