ArkivMusic Newsletter

Dear ArkivMusic Customer,

This week, I want to introduce you to Steinway artist Lara Downes, from whom I am quite sure you will hear a great deal more in the future. Lara's new release on the Steinway & Sons label brings together the music of exiles – Chopin, Bartók, Korngold, Rachmaninov, and more – and artfully connects their disparate musical voices to form an evocative narrative and a memorable listening experience that I, for one, have grown to love.

Fugue State / Feinberg
An excursion into the surprisingly passionate world
of fugal composition in the High Baroque Era.

New Release On Sale Now Through Monday for Just $9.99!*

As Lara herself explains, the Exiles' Cafe is both real and metaphorical, where the travelers of the world gather to find a home away from home, a place where journeys converge and histories collide. The musical miniatures collected here speak to vanished worlds and altered lives, to the fragility of destiny and the possibilities of new beginnings: they are postcards from the Exiles' Cafe.

I invite you to share this unique musical journey through time, place, and memory.

As always, I thank you for your support and love of classical music.

The Arkiv Team
