Good Things Happen when You Speak to Presenters

As pianist Anthony de Mare’s fabulous project, LIAISONS: Re-Imagining Sondheim from the Piano, took shape, he and producer Rachel Colbert found that having Anthony speaking passionately about the project with presenters yielded great results. Here, Mr. de Mare discusses with Eugenia Zukerman and Emily Ondracek-Peterson (founders of Noted Endeavors) how artists speaking with presenters can result in securing a concert.

Noted EndeavorsANTHONY DE MARE is one of the world’s foremost champions of contemporary music. Praised by The New York Times for his “muscularly virtuosic, remarkably uninhibited performance [and] impressive talents”, his versatility has inspired the creation of over 60 new works by some of today’s most distinguished artists, especially in the speaking-singing pianist genre, which he pioneered over 25 years ago with the premiere of Frederic Rzewski’s groundbreaking ‘De Profundis’.

He has performed Liaisons programs across the U.S., Canada and Cuba including Virginia Tech Center for the Arts, The Ravinia Festival, the Gilmore Keyboard Festival, the Virginia Arts Festival, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Schubert Club in Minneapolis, Mondavi Center at UC Davis, Rockport Music Festival, the Cliburn Series in Fort Worth, and Music at Meyer in San Francisco.
