Sunday in the Park with George [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Stephen Sondheim's musical, inspired by the life and work of the French pointillist or, as he preferred to be known, chromo-luminarist painter Georges Seurat 1859-1991, is one of his most beguiling and challenging works, but one that won't necessarily appeal to every taste. The music is, on one level, an homage to Seurat's most celebrated painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and could easily be the finest dramatization of a work of art and the life of an artist this side of Alexander Korda's film Rembrandt. But this is also a sweet, sad, profound, and ultimately elevating meditation on life and the creative process. Sunday in the Park with George ...

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Stephen Sondheim's musical, inspired by the life and work of the French pointillist or, as he preferred to be known, chromo-luminarist painter Georges Seurat 1859-1991, is one of his most beguiling and challenging works, but one that won't necessarily appeal to every taste. The music is, on one level, an homage to Seurat's most celebrated painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and could easily be the finest dramatization of a work of art and the life of an artist this side of Alexander Korda's film Rembrandt. But this is also a sweet, sad, profound, and ultimately elevating meditation on life and the creative process. Sunday in the Park with George moves with lightning swiftness between brittle passages, many centered on frustration, and soaring, achingly beautiful sections. It engages in a fair amount of wry comedy in the process, mostly at the expense of its characters, and, more importantly, the worlds of modern art, multimedia art, and new age music, among other '80s cultural fixtures. Clearly we're not talking about Gypsy or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum here, in terms of entertainment though there are a few broad moments for the ensemble, which include Charles Kimbrough and Brent Spiner, but Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters turn in brilliant performances together on "Color and Light," "We Do Not Belong Together," "Move On," "Children and Art"; the entire ensemble excels in "Sunday," and "Finishing the Hat" is worth the price of the CD by itself. The sound is clean, although the quiet passages could have been mastered at a slightly higher volume level. Note: Along with Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George is one of a pair of Sondheim musicals that exist in complete form as commercial video releases featuring their original casts.

    Is the State of The Art!

    What got me hooked on Broadway was this musical.I had got the CD for my birthday from.....(I have a bad memory).Anyway I listend to Its Hot Up Here and was astounded.Stephen Sondhime is wonderful!Every track takes you right where its being peformed,Broadway!My personal favorite is Lesson #8 becuse it decepts real relationships with someone when they pass away and the after math on looking over Georges life.But the real star is Bernedette Peters and her Everybody Loves Louie track and Move On.Im sad I missed the revival cast but next time its being peformed you know I will be there.From 1884 to 1984,Sunday Afternoon On the Island of La grand Jatte is the best story to be made.
