Notes & Reviews:

Best-selling American violinist Anne Akiko Meyers makes her label debut on KOCH International Classics with Smile!, a fresh new recording featuring a lively repertoire ranging from works by Schubert, Messiaen, Arvo Part, and Piazzolla, to entrancing arrangements of traditional Japanese songs and soulfully moving renditions of Somewhere 'Over the Rainbow' and Charlie Chaplin's standard 'Smile'.

"Every moment of Smile is generous, warm, and entertaining; as a whole, this album strikes a strong balance between ambition and amusement, none too wonky for fans with only a casual contact with classical, yet meaty enough to engage the eggheads... this is an ideal disc to get to know her with, but Smile would be just as good for late night reading or snuggling, as it combines the qualities of a wonderfully intimate feel, graciousness, and Meyers' own personal charisma. Bravo!" -All Music Guide
