Some Other Time
Steinway & Sons 30025
Foss: For Lenny (2:12)
Bernstein, arr Bailey: Clarinet Sonata (11:34)
Zuill Bailey, cello; Lara Downes, piano
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. Their quest owes everything to the pioneering spirit of earlier American composers. The new album from Downes and Bailey looks back fondly with new arrangements of music by four giants of the 20th century — Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland, Lukas Foss and Leonard Bernstein.
