Stephen Sondheim and me
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with The New York Times community.

We mourn the death of Stephen Sondheim, as musical genius, legend and friend for many years. 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 3 decades of query and response. Thank you again Steve.
