Some Other TimeSteinway Records
For Steinway & Sons, two of America's leading instrumentalists channel Bernstein, Barber, Copland and Foss to "rediscover the musical adventures of those days, quests that swept along a marvelling American public" Pianist Lara Downes and cellist Zuill Bailey have each, in their own way and quite often together, been credited with seeking out new ways of presenting classical music, of reinventing the art of the recital for our time. But for both of them, the tireless quest to touch audiences through reawakening their musical curiosity owes everything to the pioneering spirit of earlier American composers. To Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland, Lukas Foss and articulated most charismatically by Leonard Bernstein. Their new album, "Some Other Time", released by Steinway & Sons on April 29th, 2014, takes its title from a number in Bernstein's musical On The Town. It's a number about moving on, about remembering a great adventure, but with the promise that it will all come together another day, another time.
