Did you sleep OK last night? How about the night before?
If you’ve been riding a wave of insomnia for the last few months, you’re not alone. That’s why pianist Lara Downes put together The Bedtime Sessions, an album of lullabies. This collection of soothing music includes Downes’ signature expansion of the pianistic canon.
In the episode we mention a video collaboration between Downes and many of her friends for a video of Leonard Bernstein’s song “Take Care of This House.”
The full episode is above. Extras include insight on why Downes so frequently cites great women, and just how a prolific pianist finds time to practice.
