Mandy Patinkin's latest solo recording, a tribute to composer Stephen Sondheim, will be released on the Nonesuch Records label Oct. 29.
Appropriately titled "Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim," the double-CD was recorded live at the Prince Music Theater in February 2002. At the time, the Philadelphia Inquirer exclaimed, "[Patinkin's concert is] an impressive marriage of some of the most complex, perceptive, yet emotionally revealing songs written for the theatre, presented by one of the theatre's best singers."
Although an itinerary has yet to be announced, the former star of Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George will launch a national tour of the CD's material on Oct. 3. The complete track listing for the disc follows:
