Superstar violinist Anne Akiko Meyers and I recently sat down to talk about the release of her 37th album, “Mirror in Mirror.” It’s “a spiritual journey that weaves a beautiful story through commissions and arrangements by Philip Glass, John Corigliano, Jakob Ciupinski and Morten Lauridsen, alongside works by Arvo Pärt and Maurice Ravel.”
You'll likely recognize a few of the works, particularly Ravel's “Tzigane” and a special arrangement of the “O Magnum Mysterium” by Lauridsen. Included is a new work by John Corigliano “Lullaby for Natalie,” which was commissioned to commemorate the birth of Anne’s first child.
I hope you enjoy our chat and check out additional sound clips from the album HERE.
Yours in good music,
Classical Music Host, WCVE Music
