Notes & Reviews:

Anne Akiko Meyers' sixth album for eOne Music, 'Serenade: The Love Album', is an exploration of all the facets of love, featuring Leonard Bernstein's 'Serenade' and ten world premieres from seven living composer-arrangers.

'Serenade' is Bernstein's masterpiece for solo violin and orchestra, and was recorded in anticipation of the composer's upcoming 100th birthday celebration. Rounding out the album are ten newly commissioned arrangements for violin and orchestra from love-inspired music from stage and film.

The London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Keith Lockhart join Anne in this recording, which is being released in celebration of Anne's own parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

Anne Akiko Meyers was the top-selling classical instrumentalist on Billboard in 2014, a year in which she released two critically-heralded and popular albums. 'The Four Seasons: The Vivaldi Album', released in February 2014, debuted at #1 on the classical Billboard charts, and 'American Masters', released in September, was named one of the Best of 2014 by Google Play and called "the most noteworthy new music encounter" of the year by the Chicago Tribune.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The arrangements work well for violin solo, and Keith Lockhart sounds like he's having fun getting the London Symphony to schmaltz it up. The album ends as it began, with Bernstein: 'Somewhere', from West Side Story, full of Meyer's teasing slides, mutes, double stops, and ornamentations.
