This eclectic collection of Robert Parker's music for the theater contains incidental music for plays by Shakespeare, Pirandello, Marivaux, Williams, and Ibsen.

Composed for and premiered by the Theater Arts program at the California Institute of Technology, each score reflects the style and design of the production for which it was commissioned. You'll hear the lush and tragic Russian romanticism of The Notebook of Trigorin, the raucous bordello band from Six Characters In Search of An Author, the magic of springtime in the forest of Arden from As You Like It, lively dances from Othello and Double Infidelity, thrilling martial fanfares and melancholy Scottish laments from Macbeth...thirty six tracks in all!

Hearkening back to the music of the silent movie era, "Music for Melodrama" presents a collection of original themes composed to accompany the drama by Christopher Bond that gave birth to the Sondheim musical of the same name. Purity, betrayal, courage, insanity, love, revenge: all are celebrated in this original score, performed in this live recording upon both the piano and the king of instruments.

Premiered at the California Institute of Technology, "Music for Melodrama" presents one of the only original "soundtracks" for the saga of Sweeney Todd composed since Sondheim's award-winning score.
