- Lara Downes Performance
American pianist Lara Downes has been called “a delightful artist with a unique blend of musicianship and showmanship” by NPR, and praised by the Washington Post for her stunning performances “rendered with drama and nuance”. Known for her eclectic presentations of the piano repertoire – from iconic favorites to newly-commissioned works – her performances bridge musical genres and traditions, and engage a wide range of audiences with what San Francisco Classical Voice has called “an elegant example of how accessibility and a breezy relevance can exist, organically, in a classical music concert.’
Downes is the 2016 laureate of the Sphinx Organization Medals of Excellence award, recognizing her influence as an extraordinary artist of her generation, and her role as a leader in expanding audiences for classical music.
