Pianist Lara Downes Launches New Blog Featuring #PianoConvos

Critically acclaimed Steinway Concert Artist Lara Downes is redefining the solo recital format with visionary, cutting-edge performances at prestigious concert venues worldwide. Lauded by NPR as "a delightful artist with a unique blend of musicianship and showmanship" and praised by the Washington Post for her stunning performances "rendered with drama and nuance," Lara presents the piano repertoire - from iconic favorites to newly commissioned works - in new ways that bridge musical tastes, genres and audiences.

Lara's recent forays into social media and connecting with audiences include a Twitter feed, streaming her most recent album on Facebook, and now a blog discussing the passions, projects, plans and issues that are intrinsically unique to the lives of professional pianists. Inaugural interviews with Simone Dinnerstein, jazz pianist Dan Tepfer and critic Tim Page set the stage for a continuing series of intimate conversations with her friends and colleagues.

ON THE BENCH opens with a three-part series called Looking at the Goldbergs, inspired by her recent album 13 WAYS of Looking at the Goldberg: Bach Reimagined.
