Anne Akiko Meyers is celebrated as one of the world's premiere concert violinists, described as a 'trailblazing
violinist', one who is constantly 'charting her own course.' She has recently collaborated with top jazz artists such as
Chris Botti, pop singing sensation, Il Divo and jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis, who composed cadenzas for her in Mozart's
G Major Violin Concerto. This new recording of Bach's masterpieces for violin and orchestra is Anne's third release for
eOne. Alongside the two concertos for violin, Anne has recorded the Concerto for Two Violins, performing both parts on
her two Stradivari violins: her recently acquired Ex-Napoleon Molitor Stradivarius (as featured on "Countdown with Keith
Olbermann" on MSNBC) and the Royal Spanish Stradivarius, heard on her last two eOne recordings. Also included on this
disc are exquisite new arrangements of the "Air" from the Suite No. 3 and the Bach-Gounod "Ave Maria." Anne is quoted as
saying "It was magical recording the Bach album with the English Chamber Orchestra and the 'Ex-Molitor/Napoleon'
Stradivari violin, dated 1697. The special combination of beautiful repertoire, including 'Air', 'Largo' and 'Ave
Maria', the Violin Concertos and the fresh take of recording both parts of the Double Concerto on 2 different Strads,
was pure joy to make!"
