SOME ENCHANTED SONDHEIM
VOICE : JESSA LIVERSIDGE
PIANO : MALCOLM MADDOCK
Some of musical theatre's finest melodies and lyrics, from "Oklahoma" and "West Side Story" to "Follies" and "Into the Woods", from "Some enchanted evening" to "Send in the clowns".
Songs of longing, love, loss and hope.
Songs taken out of their original contexts and stripped bare, allowing the songs to tell their own stories through an intimate solo performance with sensitive piano accompaniment.
The songs intertwine to demonstrate the magic of both composers, with stories of how they inspired each other - from how Hammerstein spent an afternoon harshly tearing apart Sondheim’s first attempt at a musical, to a touching photo inscription left by Hammerstein not long before he died.
"A wonderful evening of music, informal and informative."
Neil Foster, BBC Radio York
"Magical...well known songs complemented by many more that enchanted, amused and moved the audience…a musical evening, but also high-quality theatre."
The Flanagan Collective
“Convincing character and mood portrayed effortlessly in every group of contrasting songs, delicate, powerful, desperate, emotional, superb technique, impeccable intonation from start to finish,”
Ruth McCartney, audience member
