    Listen: "Stephen Sondheim: The Nonesuch Recordings," A Playlist

    Reasons to celebrate may be hard to come by these days, but the 90th birthday of Stephen Sondheim today is certainly one of them. To mark the occasion, we've assembled all of the Sondheim songs and cast albums on Nonesuch recordings in one place, featuring performances by Mandy Patinkin, Audra McDonald, Dawn Upshaw, Jonny Depp, Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Michael Cerveris, Raúl Esparza, Laura Benanti, Nathan Lane, Neil Patrick Harris, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Vanessa Williams, Alexander Gemignani, and more.

    "When his words go through my system, they rejuvenate my mind and soul to a point of reminding me what it is I am trying to be alive for," Mandy Patinkin told the Guardian in its "all-star toast" for the composer's birthday. "Stephen’s songs remain my prayers, my guide posts. They are mantras in our family. Along with my wife and children, he is one of the great gifts of my life."

    Here, the gift of Sondheim:
