We are delighted to announce the release of:
A Lasting Record by
A LASTING RECORD tells the unique true story of two separate but
interconnected lives: New Yorker William Kapell, ss greatest
home-grown concert pianist, and Roy Preston, Melbourne-based
Myer cosmetics salesman and classical music aficionado.
Kapell and Preston are united by one single acetate, containing a
Chopin sonata recorded by Roy from ss last concert in the
regional Australian city of Geelong. With a mix of detective
work and imagination, from this single acetate, Stephen Downes
tells a spellbinding tale of the greatest pianist who almost
never was, and his eccentric and passionate fan.
