OPUS 2 duo discuss their recording of music from Sondheim's ‘A Little Night Music’
1 Stephen Sondheim, A Little Night Music Suite for Violin and Piano  

The acclaimed Opus Two violin-piano duo's world premiere recording of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music: Suite for Violin and Piano arranged by veteran Broadway composer Eric Stern will be released on November 19, 2021 on Bridge Records(4010). The recording is available for pre-order at https://bridgerecords.bandcamp.com/album/a-little-night-music-suite-for-violin-and-piano and upon release can be streamed on Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, and purchased via iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, among others.

The four-movement suite, including Night Waltz, You Must Meet My Wife, A Weekend In The Country, and Send In The Clowns, is based on Stephen Sondheim's 1973 Tony-award-winning musical A Little Night Music, inspired by Ingmar Bergman's 1955 film Smiles of a Summer Night. The show's most famous song Send in the Clowns became a pop standard recorded by Judy Collins, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Sarah Vaughan, and Barbra Streisand, among others.  With a limited number of chamber music scores in his catalogue, Sondheim fans will be delighted to welcome this new addition to the violin/piano duo repertoire.
