    Learning from a master: the music of Stephen Sondheim

    I remember Christmas morning 25 years ago when I received the original cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. I listened to the recording from start to finish, mesmerized by the intensity and sophistication of what I had heard. At that age, I didn’t fully understand what drew me to Sondheim’s music so much. Over time, I continued to grow fonder of the intricacies of the way in which he placed each note, perfectly married to its lyrics and using both always as a driving force moving the story line along. His painstaking details and depth of thought that go into his characters are what make his work such a gift to perform.
