Anne Akiko Meyers on her new album, 'Shining Night'

Friday, May 13, 2022

The violinist offers a musical journey through the day, much of it in the company of guitarist Jason Vieaux

Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers's new album, 'Shining Night' takes listeners on a musical journey through the passing of a day - via Villa-Lobos, Bach, Leo Brouwer and even Elvis - and features a number of duets with guitarist Jason Vieaux. She talks to Gramophone's Editor Martin Cullingford about how she developed this wonderful programme.
