“Expect glamor with substance”
— David Patrick Stearns - WQXR: New York's Classical Music Station on Lara's new album "For Lenny: an Intimate Tribute to Leonard Bernstein and his American Legacy"

Acclaimed pianist and recording artist Lara Downes brings Leonard Bernstein to life through Lenny's lesser-known "Anniversaries for Piano" and new works created as anniversary pieces for Lenny himself written by contemporary artists. Bernstein's son and middle child, Alexander Bernstein, shares stories from the stage as part of the performance.
