Spider Saloff’s Sondheim

Spider SaloffThe concert is a retrospective on the life of Stephen Sondheim and a collection of songs by America’s most celebrated, living composer for musical theater.  Saloff will take a fresh approach to Sondheim, capturing the art of popular songs which stand alone, apart from the musicals they were composed for.

 

Saloff will perform many of the beloved classics along with a few rare gems. She’ll interweave both jazz and theatrical treatments of the songs and storytelling presented with her own special unusual twist for an unforgettable evening.
Sondheim can be presented with piano and voice, with trio, or quartet.

 

Featured songs:

 

Comedy Tonight

Some People

Ladies Who Lunch

Losing My Mind

“I’ve heard most Sondheim numbers numerous times, but I found myself paying closer attention to the lyrics given Spider’s unique and powerful interpretation. Her inclusion of a couple of lesser known Sondheim numbers from films provided even Sondheim fans with a wider look at the breadth of work of this American legend. Saloff doesn’t just sing Sondheim, she lives and breathes him thru a full embodiment of rich interpretation!”
