Week of March 12th

Lara Downes
For Lenny

Bay Area pianist Lara Downes pays tribute to the Bernstein centennial with a new album of pieces by and for Leonard Bernstein. For Lenny is a kind of family-and-friends effort, featuring the artistry of opera legend Thomas Hampson, roots singer Rhiannon Giddens, superstar beatboxer Kevin “K.O.” Olusola (a member of the chart-topping a cappella group Pentatonix), and Mexican/American clarinet prodigy Javier Morales-Martinez.
