World-renowned violinist Anne Akiko Meyers stopped by the 88.9 WCVE studios today and I had the pleasure of talking with her during Classical Music. She’s in town presenting the Virginia premiere of Mason Bates’ Violin Concerto with the Richmond Symphony. We talked a bit about the music, her career and her new Guarneri violin.
Anne has a busy year in store, with concerto and recital performances across North America, Europe and Asia, plus two new recordings. Her CD, The Four Seasons (The Vivaldi Album) with the English Chamber Orchestra was just released and another is in production with the London Symphony Orchestra to be released later this year.
You can hear Anne Akiko Meyers with the Richmond Symphony this weekend at the Carpenter Theatre. Performances are Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are available at richmondsymphony.com.
