“I always think of it like this huge being that rises up every night with everyone backstage and the costumes and everything that makes a Broadway show,” shares Dorman-Phaneuf. “It's so many humans all working in perfect harmony, as it were, to make a show come to being. So it makes sense to me that that's what this music is about.”
Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf’s Music of Broadway for Cello and Piano was released in September 2021 on Craft Recordings/Concord Theatricals. The record reimagines songs by Leonard Bernstein, Jason Robert Brown, Adam Guettel, Alan Menken, Mary Rodgers, Richard Rodgers, Richard and Robert Sherman, Stephen Sondheim, and Kay Swift.
Music of Broadway for Cello and Piano features Broadway classics like “Beauty and the Beast,” “Maria,” “Send in the Clowns,” and a medley of Richard Rodgers classics, with arrangements by Dorman-Phaneuf, Brad Haak, Michael Kosarin, Simon Mulligan, Ted Sperling, and Billy Stritch. Dorman-Phaneuf is also accompanied on the piano by Haak, Kosarin, Mulligan, Sperling, and Stritch.
