Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers Seasons…dreams New Album on E1 Music Streets September 28, 2010
Including works by Beethoven, Debussy, Fauré and Wagner alongside world premiere recordings of arrangements by Tyzik, Pritsker and De Rosa
On September 28, 2010, the innovative and versatile violinist Anne Akiko Meyers releases Seasons…dreams, her newest recording on E1 Music. One of the world’s premiere concert violinists, Anne Akiko Meyers has been celebrated throughout her nearly three-decade career for her exceptional musicianship, charismatic presence and creative diversity. On this new release, Meyers is joined by long-time collaborator Reiko Uchida on piano and the young harpist of the Paris Opera, Emmanuel Ceysson.
Seasons…dreams is anchored by Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 5 in F Major, Op. 24, “Spring.” This sets the stage for a series of lyrical pieces inspired by songs and poems which take us on a journey through the seasons and into reverie. Meyers presents familiar songs in unique arrangements and unexpected melodies mixed with traditional classical works. “I love the interchange of sound, the feeling of being a chameleon,” says Meyers of her constant exploration of different textures and sounds.
