Beginning with a discussion of his latest work, Passion, and working back in time to Pacific Overtures, this collection of interviews details Sondheim's meticulous work as a composer. Among the topics discussed are Sondheim's approaches to dramatizing with music and lyrics; the creation and use of motifs and thematic material; the use of harmony, melody, and rhythm to reflect character; the structuring of a score; the use of pastiche; and the practical aspects of collaboration. The conversations also include amusing anecdotes about his shows, Sondheim's musings on art and musical theater, reflections on the evolution of theater music, and thoughts on the influences of those who came before him." "In addition, the book includes Sondheim's list of "Songs I Wish I'd Written (At Least in Part)," his reasons behind some of those choices, and messages he received from composers and lyricists whose songs were included on the list. The work is complemented by a comprehensive listing of all of Sondheim's musical works - the most complete discography of Sondheim recordings to date - and publishing information for all his songs and scores, including vocal ranges."--BOOK JACKET+-+5289935635134033ocn048610205visu19840.27Sondheim, StephenSunday in the park with GeorgeDramaFilm adaptationsHistorical dramaBroadway musical loosely based on the life of artist Georges Seurat132442ocn040758769rcrd19700.28Sondheim, StephenCompany original Broadway cast recordingA bachelor observes the the pros and cons of marriage126228ocn000155244book19690.32Sondheim, StephenCompany; a musical comedyDrama"Company is a funny, sophisticated exploration of love and commitment as seen through the eyes of a charming perpetual bachelor questioning his single state and his enthusiastically married, slightly envious friends"+-+0356184006119548ocn026211962score19790.33Sondheim, StephenSweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street : a musical thrillerMusicDrama+-+397937412516902ocn045729844file19900.39Gordon, Joanne LesleyArt isn't easy the achievement of Stephen SondheimCriticism, interpretation, etc"Tracing Sondheim's career from his initial success as lyricist for West side Story and Gypsy to the opening of Into the Woods, [the author] demonstrates that the value of Sondheim's work obviously lies in its seriousness of theme coupled with its disturbing content." - Front flap162313ocn038468407book19980.25Secrest, MeryleStephen Sondheim : a lifeBiographyA biography of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, discussing his early music education, his struggles to become recognized in the theatre, his Broadway successes, and his relationships with some of the world's best known composers, actors, and directors+-+076988038514937ocn046731225book20010.32Citron, StephenSondheim and Lloyd-Webber : the new musicalCriticism, interpretation, etcBiography"The New York Times called Stephen Sondheim "the greatest and perhaps best known artist in the American musical theater." The same paper referred to his contemporary, Andrew Lloyd-Webber, as "the most commercially successful composer in history." Whatever their individual achievements might be, it is agreed by most critics that these two colossi have dominated world musical theater for the last quarter century and hold the key to the direction the musical stage will take in the future." "Beginning with Sondheim's lyrics-only works - West Side Story, Gypsy, and Do I Hear a Waltz? - through his scores for Saturday Night, Company, Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Pacific Overtures, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park, Into the Woods, Assassins, and Passion, all these milestones of musical theater have been explored. Lloyd-Webber's musical contribution from his early works, The Likes of Us and Joseph, to Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Starlight Express, Aspects of Love, By Jeeves, The Phantom of the Opera, Song and Dance, Mass, and Sunset Boulevard, to Whistle Down the Wind are also thoroughly analyzed." "The works of these two splendid artists are clarified for the casual or professional reader in context with their contemporaries. Complete with a quintuple chronology (Sondheim, Lloyd-Webber, US theater, British theater, world events), copious quotations from their works, and many never before published illustrations, the future of the art-form that is the crowning achievement of the twentieth century is made eminently clear in this book. Sondheim and Lloyd-Webber is a must-read for anyone interested in the contemporary theater."--BOOK JACKET+-+5651450465145716ocn013457137book19740.31Zadan, CraigSondheim & Co.Criticism, interpretation, etcBiography14136ocn601459078file20050.50Swayne, SteveHow Sondheim found his soundCriticism, interpretation, etc"How Sondheim Found His Sound is the first book to provide an overview of his style and one of only a few to account for these various components, how they appear in Sondheim's work, and how they affect his musical and dramatic choices."--BOOK JACKET+-+724966729513443ocn505417138book20100.23Sondheim, StephenFinishing the hat : collected lyrics (1954-1981) with attendant comments, principles, heresies, grudges, whines and anecdotesCriticism, interpretation, etcBiographyStephen Sondheim has won seven Tonys, an Academy Award, seven Grammys, a Pulitzer Prize and the Kennedy Center Honors. His lyrics have become synonymous with musical theater and popular culture, and here Sondheim has not only collected his lyrics for the first time, he is giving readers a rare personal look into his life as well as his remarkable productions. Along with the lyrics for all of his musicals from 1954 to 1981--including West Side Story, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd--Sondheim treats us to never-before-published songs cut or discarded from each show. He discusses his relationship with his mentor, Oscar Hammerstein II, and his collaborations with extraordinary talents from Leonard Bernstein to Angela Lansbury. The anecdotes--filled with pointed observations and intimate details--transport us back to a time when theater was a major pillar of American culture.

But soon the biggest hits were arriving from an unexpected source-London. This program illustrates the reshaping of the Broadway musical as the curtain fell on the 20th century and reopened on the 21st. From Stephen Sondheim{u2019}s contemplative Sunday in the Park with George to blockbusters like Cats and Les Misérables to Julie Taymor{u2019}s triumphant reimagining of The Lion King, viewers are introduced to the stunning variety of Broadway{u2019}s last three decades. The urban flavor of Rent, the manic comedy of The Producers, and the magic of Wicked also help describe Broadway{u2019}s transition from the pre- to post-9/11 era. Interviewees include writer-producer Mel Brooks, actor Nathan Lane, composer-lyricist Jerry Herman, director Arthur Laurents, and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Highlights include home movies of Jonathan Larson and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Wicked in rehearsal and opening on Broadway731ocn783245679com20040.56Tradition 1957-1979Criticism, interpretation, etcWest Side Story not only brought unconventional subject matter to the musical stage, it ushered in a new breed of director-choreographer and a need for performers who could sing, dance, and act. But by the time Jerome Robbins{u2019} last original musical, Fiddler on the Roof, closed in 1972, the world of Broadway had changed even more radically. Rock {u2019}n{u2019} roll, civil rights, and the Vietnam War took musical theater in daring new directions with shows like Hair, Company, and Chicago. This program follows that evolutionary (and revolutionary) process. Interviewees include composer Marvin Hamlisch, producer Hal Prince, writer Frank Rich, lyricist Stephen Sondheim, director Julie Taymor, and actors Joel Grey, Jerry Orbach, and Ben Vereen. Highlights include rare footage of Ethel Merman rehearsing for Gypsy and home movies from the original stage production of Chicago284ocn011266423book19840.93Gordon, Joanne LesleyThe American musical stops singing and finds its voice : a study of the work of Stephen SondheimCriticism, interpretation, etcBiography214ocn020506708book19880.95Orchard, Lee FStephen Sondheim and the disintegration of the American Dream : a study of the work of Stephen Sondheim from "Company" to "Sunday in the park with George"Criticism, interpretation, etc211ocn044633244book19920.95The poetry of song : five tributes to Stephen Sondheim+-+7703037425+-+7703037425Fri Mar 21 16:05:59 EDT 2014batch103374
