Stephen Sondheim and the Creative Process

A great interview on NPR's Fresh Air (with Terry Gross) of composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim.

I love all the great things he has to say about the creative process, things like "art is order out of chaos" and how collaborative his work is.  It goes to show the way in which we create art spans all media.  I also love how precise his mind is.  He's very specific about the definitions of terms ~ something near and dear to my heart.
