Renowned violinist Anne Akiko Meyers has released her 35th album, “Fantasia.” The Los Angeles Times describes her playing as “vigorous mastery, unflinching technical skills and stylish elegance” and the Denver Post says “Anne Akiko Meyers is the coolest thing to happen to the violin since Stradivari.”

The title work of this recording is the final work by composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, written especially for Meyers. Iconic works by Maurice Ravel and Karol Szymanowski round out the repertoire. You can hear sound clips from this album HERE.

Enjoy my chat with Anne about this latest project.

Yours in good music,
