Through his entertaining concert presentations, commentaries on NPR’s Performance Today and PBS NewsHour, books and CDs, Rob Kapilow brings the joy and wonder of classical music – and unravels some of its mysteries – to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Only a handful of artists in the 20th century redefined their fields as completely as Stephen Sondheim redefined musical theater. Yet although nearly everyone would agree that Sondheim has been the most influential innovator of the musical of the last half century, both his basic temperament and compositional style are almost directly at odds with the Broadway musical itself, and as a result perhaps no great artist’s work has been more misunderstood than Sondheim’s. Join Rob Kapilow and singers for an evening of performance and discussion that takes you deeply inside some of the most extraordinary theater music ever written, including songs like “Send in the Clowns,” “Finishing the Hat,” “Too Many Mornings” and “Getting Married Today.”
“[Rob Kapilow] leaps into the void dividing music analysis from appreciation and fills it with exhilarating details and sensations.” – The New York Times
