Motifs, Merrily

The consensus on Sondheim is that he's as great a lyricist as the American musical theater has ever produced, but opinions diverge on his music. I'm a pretty unreserved fan, and Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times helps to illustrate why, even without words, Sondheim is on par with some of the great composers for any medium in any age.
