Anne Akiko Meyers - Mirror in Mirror is a highly personal collection / MPR: New Classical Tracks

Bookmark and Share

"This project, Mirror in Mirror, really was a very collaborative process, but it took ten years to create. And just the recording itself was over a two-year time span. That's a lot of traveling. We were in three different studios - from the UK to New York City, New York state - to record all the various pieces on the album." Every time she releases a new recording, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers says it's her last. That was 37 albums ago. Her latest is a highly personal collection. It allows her to collaborate with five of the six featured composers.

"I just have such a passion to follow these composers and such a deep respect and awe for composers in general. It just brings back how I really wish I could just go back in time and harass so many composers who didn't leave enough violin repertoire in their legacy."
