“Meyers’ playing is what it always has been: a national treasure… …Above all, she is a musical wizard, with astonishing access to every kind of expressive color. Whether within a phrase or on just a single note, she can change tone color in a micro-second from smooth grain to rough, from dark to radiant, from thoughtful to assertive. And she can, like magic, bring new work to vibrant life.”
Mason Bates: Concerto for violin and orchestra
World Premiere: December 7, 2012 with the Pittsburgh Symphony
Anne Akiko Meyers performs the Mason Bates Violin Concerto with Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
“The formidable solo part called on Meyers to fling handfuls of darting, flickering notes in more or less perpetual motion over a wired orchestra given to punching out down-and-dirty rhythms… The music is cannily tailored to Meyers‘ musical personality, and it put to the test her ability to draw floods of sweet tone and shape the quasi-bluesy and jazzy riffs from her priceless fiddle. She passed the test splendidly.“
