We mourn the death of Stephen Sondheim, as musical genius, legend and friend for many years.
The New York Timesdanielpquinn684 in 2019-20.
About 30 years ago I wrote Mr. Sondheim a letter obtrusely asking for his support early in my career. While at first he deferred, we began a correspondence and he became a donor and friend. In dark days and brighter years he urged me on and I am grateful. We wrote about other composers from Kurt Weill to Sylvano Bussotti.
A few years ago, I found myself at a bus stop across the street from Mr. Sondheim’s house. I knew his address from our correspondence but did not ring his bell. I knew him and he me over more than decades and query and response.
Thank you again Steve.
