CD of the Week: Lara Downes: America Again
In an all-American program, Downes curates an album that explores the various facets of the American Dream.
Having finally developed a sense of national identity, the composers of twentieth-century America boast one of the most diverse repertoires within classical music. Including works by George Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Amy Beach, and many others, Downes musically navigates the profound ethos running through the veins of her home country.
