Sondheim on Music is primarily a transcript of a series of interviews with Stephen Sondheim focusing on his work as a composer. During the interviews he and the author look through Sondheim's manuscripts and sketches and discuss the creative process. The discussions focus on six shows: Passion Assassins Into the Woods Sunday in the Park with George Sweeney Todd and Pacific Overtures but nearly every Sondheim score comes up in conversation. Hardback

Among the topics discussed are how Sondheim approaches musicalizing characters and dramatic moments how motifs and thematic material are created and used how harmony melody and rhythm reflect character the structuring of a score the use of pastiche and the practical aspects of collaboration. Sondheim devotees will be forever grateful to library of congress music specialest Mark Horowitz for the interviews he conducted with Mr. Sondheim inWWWW 1997. This is the most extensive book about the composers work.
