Notes & Reviews:
Of the American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, the American Record Guide is quoted as saying, "Through her peerless mastery and vivid imagination there seems to be no limit to the colors she can draw from her instrument." Sony Classical's 6-CD reissue of some of her finest recordings include the Mendelssohn Concerto, which Gramophone praised for its "sweetness and poetry", also lauding her "rapt playing" in Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending and her performance of Bruch's Scottish Fantasy, "altogether a great success". The many other acclaimed performances here include the Prokofiev concertos, in which "Meyers produces a marvellous variety of tone ... This is playing of rare sensitivity" (BBC Music Magazine), with her "glowingly Romantic performance" (BBC Music Magazine) of the Strauss Sonata and an American album of "breathtaking intensity" (Penguin Guide).
