what the critics are saying
 


One of the Year's Top 5 Albums! From its stars the affable, robust Tom Wopat; the relentlessly charming Vanessa Williams and the peerless Barbara Cook to its supple-voiced, expertly-used supporting players, the ensemble captures the piercing wit and the dizzying peaks of joy and heartache in these intricate but highly approachable treasures.”
–Elysa Gardner, USA Today


“A priceless gift to the theater. revealing, fascinating and utterly charming!”
–Newsday


“It feels like you're having an intimate chat with the master himself!”
–Entertainment Weekly


“There's been a lot of Stephen Sondheim's music offered up this year as he celebrates his 80th birthday, but the most lasting gift could very well turn out to be the original cast recording of SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM. Transferred to disc with care and taste, it's a little like the songwriter has pulled up a chair to have a one-on-one conversation with you.”
–Theatermania


Sondheim on Sondheim
Original Broadway Cast Recording
Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams and Tom Wopat

Hailed by the Associated Press as a "revelatory revue full of wonderful moments" and by USA Today as a "funny, affectionate and revealing tribute to musical theater's greatest living composer and lyricist," SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words... and music.

An all-star cast headed by Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams and Tom Wopat takes on new arrangements of over two-dozen Sondheim tunes, ranging from the beloved to the obscure, interspersed with audio commentary by the composer himself, who reveals fascinating details about his life and his art. Stephen Sondheim's final word on his unparalleled body of work has been preserved by PS Classics in this lavish two-disc set, a 2010 Grammy Award nominee.
