Notes & Reviews:

On her latest recording, violinist Anne Akiko Meyers takes us on a musical journey that begins in a hushed gentle dreamscape and ends with languorous longing. She traverses the seasons, as expressed in a gorgeous selection of pieces which evoke everything from cherry blossoms, to endless blue skies to starry winter nights. One of the world's premiere concert violinists, Anne Akiko Meyers has been celebrated throughout her nearly three-decade career for her exceptional musicianship, charismatic presence and creative diversity. On this new release, Meyers is joined by long-time collaborator Reiko Uchida on piano and the young harpist of the Paris Opera, Emmanuel Ceysson.

"She starts and ends in explicit reverie...The delectable mood infuses much of the disc, with Reiko Uchida provding a sympathetic pianistic foil. Few could resists Meyer's swooning charms in 'Summertime'...but she typically throws in some spicier fare as well." -BBC Music Magazine

"Meyers plays with a consistently sweet, full and lyrical tone throughout the disc...What initially seems like a disc of sweetmeats and encores has a thread of steel running through it. Meyers shows she is equally adept at playing Classical, Romantic and jazz idioms in this imaginatively programmed recital." -Classical FM
